At the Acres we aim to offer a wide selection of in house activities including weekly art sessions. Whilst these follow weekly themes these are structured so that everyone who lives here has an experience that is tailored to their own needs and abilities. These sessions not help to develop skills but they also help to communicate differing times of the year and seasons by means of the session contents.
We have followed various Celebration Days, for example, Valentine’s Day, St David’s Day, St Patrick’s Day, Mother’s Day, International Epilepsy Day, Easter and Christmas. These celebrations included a range of projects from collage hearts, daffodil chains, shamrocks, flowers for Mother’s Day on a card, Easter eggs and chickens, we have also had sessions to represent summer, autumn winter and spring, and we have worked on larger themes representing theme as diverse as ‘Identity’ and ‘Australia’.
