Drawing Life

Drawing Life brings life drawing to people living with dementia.  Picasso said it took him a lifetime to learn to draw like a child.  It can be said that we revert to childhood as we age.  Drawing Life offers people with nearly a lifetime behind them the chance to respond to a life model with a stick of charcoal and a piece of paper.  People who may or may not be familiar with life drawing react in many different and encouraging ways through their sketches, as do their carers, their families and others who view the work.  The drawings have much to offer on many levels, encouraging the viewer to reflect on life and memory, the present and the past.

The drawings to be exhibited at the Hastings Arts Forum have been created by residents at Hastings Court during a term of classes.  The project is supported by the Big Lottery Fund.
