A Passion For PaintingJanuary 24, 2017 | Pine Rock Manor
Pine Rock Manor resident Betty Normandeau often told stories of her love for arts and crafts. Before her residency at Pine Rock Manor, she spent much of her time decorating her walls with beautiful stencil paintings. Betty's hobby for stenciling was a creative outlet that she missed dearly. The staff noticed how much stenciling meant to Betty, and quickly brainstormed what could be done to help her express her creative ability while living at Pine Rock Manor.
The staff and management collectively decided to create an opportunity for Betty to share her artistic talent with the rest of the community. Betty was ecstatic when she was presented with the opportunity to do some wall stenciling in the community's activity room. Betty and activities director Tina Davis went shopping for supplies. Betty knew exactly what she was looking for. She effortlessly navigated the aisles of the craft store and collected a plethora of supplies. With brushes, paints, and stencils in hand, Betty was eager to start her project.
Tina and Betty agreed the stencil would be the perfect decorative addition to the wall above the activity room's sliding door. The designated area required a step ladder to get the work done. With no difficulty, Betty climbed right up and began her work. When all was said and done, Betty was very pleased with how well her stencil turned out. Many of the residents often compliment Betty on how great it looks. We are so happy that we are able to help make WOW! Moments like these!
