Did you know that painting forces you to use both sides of your brain simultaneously? This helps creativity, increases cognitive function, boosts blood flow and improves coordination.
Residents at The Commons love to show off their artistic abilities. This week we celebrated Georgia O’Keefe. Born in 1887, Georgia O’Keefe was an American Artist who painted nature in a way that showed how it made her feel. She is best known for her painting of enlarged flowers and her use of vibrant colors. Residents spent time studying her timeless paintings and then created their own masterpieces.
