Expressing yourself artistically should be available to everyone in the world, young or old, because it can be therapeutic and you can discover talents that you never thought you had before. Painting is an art form that most people enjoy taking part in because they get to turn something white and bland into a colorful master piece. All you need is some canvas or paper, paint, and brushes (or they can use their hands). Next you will just need to help inspire your residents. If they cannot think of anything to draw, then try to pull something out of them by asking them to paint their favorite memory. Even if the paint job is not like professional artists, they will feel good because instead of holding something inside, they put it on paper.
