One ART Packet = 3 Activities & Unlimited Copies
The Rainy Day Portraits Program created by award-winning Portrait Artist and NAAP* member, Ileana Prosper Holman, helps promote health and wellness in a variety of community-based settings. 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 art lessons and stimulating hands-on activities.
Benefits of the Program: Provides educational and entertaining material to foster creativity and imagination, enhance cognitive function, improve fine motor skills, and reduce anxiety/depression.
- Crayola Twistables Colored Pencils (No sharpening Required, Plastic Barrels for Easy Wipe Down)
- US Letter-Size Heavyweight Project Paper or Cardstock (to print Template and Coloring Postcard)
- Paper Trimmer (for cutting postcard)
