SheerArt

Collaborative arts project working with older people in  Age Uk Sheppey to produce decorative ceramic tile murals to decorate their centre following a series of workshops designed to spark ideas and build the participants confidence in painting and drawing their contribution to the mural.


Espression Arts worked with 4 groups at Age Uk Sheppey took part in 6 workshops each – 2 Day Centre Groups and 1 COGS group for people living with Dementia and 1 Dynamo Group for people with early onset Dementia.


Participants were taken through 6 workshops which addressed the following:


1 – Mug Painting – building confidence and getting to know you activity where everyone had fun painting a mug which they got to take home after glazing.


2 – Designing and Idea Development – using collage techniques and laminated sheets to design a place mat which depicts your “View” local community.  Drawing, colouring, cutting, selecting and placing skills to design their ideas for the mural.


3 – Drawing and structuring the mural – free drawing, stencilling, tracing skills to make sure everyone is comfortable painting one or more tile taking reference from their original laminated design.


4 – Painting and detailing the mural images seeing how they look together as a group.


5 – Showcase event and mini celebration at the Age Uk with the participants, press and funders.
