🍃Student's work: Art therapy with Fabric Painting botanicals.
(👇read BTS story)
🌷I have been working with a #DementiaPatient
for a month now, teaching her fabric painting. It's been quite a profound journey and I have learned so much from this experience. 🖌As an art educator, I had to readjust my teaching methods because she doesnt remember every session easily, so I had to create a system with patterns that she can familiarize. So I taught her Fabric Transprinting. 🙇♀️And because she doesnt remember me, I have to create topics based on her interest to break the ice again. 💛My student is very talented. She is an elderly lady that was once a folk art enthusiast. What amazes me is that even though she claimed she cant paint, yet the moment she holds the brush, things happen naturally. It is beautiful!
