For today's art class at a Sydney nursing home we crafted around the theme of remembering tea time. With a traditional set of tea cups from the 60's as props, we spoke about the popularity of flowers and roses as patterns on tea cups, and the gold paint trims that were popular at the time. As the ladies sipped their morning tea, we painted floral tea cups to use as bookmarks. Deep in concentration, the residents enjoyed seeing how a blob of pink paint can be turned into a rose, and how easily more details can be added to flowers and leaves to make them pop. All appreciated the little pompom tied around the teacup handle to page mark and leave out of the book.
