The pathway to enrichment, entertainment, stimulation & encouragement in our community.
Homer Watson House & Gallery is pleased to offer Seniors & Community Outreach Programs within the Waterloo Region, that are designed to enrich, entertain and stimulate. Participation is encouraged through a structured visual art activity or museum based Reminiscent Therapy program that is both accessible and rewarding. Community Outreach Programs are designed and delivered by professionals who are skilled in the areas of Social Services, Education, and Fine Arts.
Therapeutic art programs benefit participants through the process of socialization and self-expression. These programs are developed to evoke emotions, enhance the power of thought and increase stimulus through a creative source.
Guided by an experienced instructor, participants will create drawings using various media. Drawing increases confidence and prompts storytelling through pictures.
Participants are encouraged to explore and experiment with paint and colour to stimulate emotion, happiness, and a sense of well-being.
A professional gently guides participants to express themselves through clay, providing hand-over-hand support. Clay is a medium with which the participant feels in control, enabling self-exploration.
Additional themes available – or design your own!
