Cleopatra Packet - SAMPLE PHOTO


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
  • Template 
  • 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.

Suggested Supplies:

  • Crayola Twistables Colored Pencils (No sharpening Required, Plastic Barrels for Easy Wipe Down)
  • US Letter-Size Cardstock (for Template and Coloring Postcard)
  • Safety Scissors and Glue (for Postcard Project)
  • Embellishments (Stickers/Glitter/Ephemera)
