Drawing for dementia

Classes that bring art ‘to life’ for residents at a Hastings care home can continue thanks to further funding from the Big Lottery Fund. Hastings Court on The Ridge has been running the classes, which use a life model, in collaboration with Hastings artist and author, Judy Parkinson, for just over a year.

Life-drawing classes bring laughter and fun to relieve dementia darkness

Dementia is not much fun; for the subjects themselves, for their families or for their carers. But drawing has provided a way to cut through the darkness and get people laughing, as Judy Parkinson has found with her Drawing Life classes. A first exhibition of the work will be on view from next weekened, she tells Nick Terdre.
