Through the guidance and mentoring of a professional artist, the Art Therapy program at Belmont House encourages and supports residents as they explore and develop their creative talents in a personally-meaningful and rewarding way.
Each week residents meet in the Craft Room, and work side-by-side on their own personal projects that encompass a wide variety of mediums including pastel, oil, and watercolour. The subject matter is based on the personal and varied interests of each resident. Some are reflective of past memories and friendships, and some depict contemporary scenes.
Every year, we professionally display the artwork created by our residents in the very successful “Belmont House Art Show”. The Show is a wonderful opportunity for all members of the Belmont House community to share in their appreciation of the beautiful work created by the residents. It is also a wonderful way for residents to share the results of their new talents and capabilities with family and friends.
