It is surprising how many hidden talents emerge after a stroke, our members who have previously shown no artistic aptitude often discover that they can not only produce creditable award winning works of art but also discover a pleasurable and satisfying pastime. Even if a dominant hand has been affected by the stroke it is amazing how the other hand adapts.
Many of our Stroke Members have never painted before having a stroke but now produce lovely paintings and their designs have been used on Christmas cards which were reproduced for sale for the benefit of the Group. Also on art days a team of volunteers recycle birthday cards which are sold throughout the year.
For several years we have been invited to join the Thornbury Art Club to exhibit our members pictures at their annual art exhibition. This event has always been extremely successful and has been a great encouragement to our members. We would like to express our thanks to Thornbury Art Club for their continuing support.
