1 Art Packet = 3 Stimulating Activities
Since October 2015, the Face to Face Art & Wellness Program created by award-winning Artist and NAAP* member, Ileana Prosper Holman, has been helping to promote creativity, health and well being in long-term care communities throughout the Tampa Bay area. Due to the current pandemic, 5-page packets from the live program are now available for purchase as Digital Downloads.
Every month the Activity Department receives a new pdf art packet via email to download and distribute for group or in-room activities. Each packet allows participants to learn interesting facts about a subject inspired by arts and culture, create an expressive portrait of the subject using the art lesson and template provided, test their knowledge and recall ability with a crossword puzzle, and complete a postcard project that will allow them to communicate with family/friends outside of the community.
All packets, designed by the artist, are subject-themed and include the following:
- Interesting Facts/Inspiration Page
- Art Lesson
- Crossword Puzzle
- Coloring Postcard
Goal: Facilitate learning, inspire, and connect.
Objective: Improve the health and well being of the people we serve through meaningful art lessons and stimulating hands-on activities.
Benefits of the Program: Provides educational and entertaining material to foster creativity and imagination, enhances cognitive function, improves fine motor skills, and reduces anxiety/depression.
