VERO BEACH, Fla., Jan. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- From poetry and photography, to art history and performing arts, the residents at Watercrest Senior Living communities are exploring their creativity through Watercrest's signature program, Artful Expressions. Designed with evidence-based research, the program invites residents to celebrate their originality and imagination through a series of interesting and unique classes, workshops, and experiences.
At Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care, the Artful Expressions program kicked off this month with a focus on painting. Residents received invitations to participate in uniquely themed painting workshops, and the first session was a great success.
"We had a fantastic turnout at our first Artful Expressions workshop and the feedback from our residents was excellent," says Noel Fortner, Community Programming Director of Watercrest Newnan. "Residents of all skill levels enjoyed the opportunity to express their individuality and socially interact. We are looking forward to an entire season of exploring artistic programs!"
Artful Expressions is a critical element of Watercrest's Live Exhilarated™ program, which was created to focus on the active pursuit of 'personal wholeness' for each resident. The program includes thoughtfully planned, multi-part programs inspired by individual resident's passions and interests which align with the seven facets of wholeness: Get Active, Be Curious, Get Connected, Be Uplifted, Get Creative, Be Social, Be Adventurous.
"Studies show that communication barriers can be broken down through artistic expression, and that expressing creativity provides opportunities to think, problem-solve, and explore new ideas," says Sheena Jeffries, Regional Director of Engagement at Watercrest Senior Living.
