Finding Serenity for Seniors: Peaceful Painting at Elim Park

At Elim Park, we have built some very exciting new spaces for residents, including Art Works – a state-of-the-art studio featuring spaces for pottery, watercolor, and so much more! It was important for us to not only build these spaces, but have a clear vision of what they will be used for and how they will benefit residents and their loved ones who come to visit. One of the new classes offered in Art Works is Peaceful Painting, led by the incredible Kellyn and Bobby Trapp. This class features live music, and allows residents to embrace their creativity while embracing a moment of peace. Read below to discover some of the benefits:
