We facilitated 5 mosaic-making sessions with seniors at a long-term care centre. We cut out the templates from plywood and prepared a big selection of materials, and we provided coaching and direction. The actual work was done by the residents, none of whom had done this kind of thing before. I think they did a great job, and it was a great pleasure to watch these folks become engaged with the project. The photo above shows the work created by the seniors.
