Great Works Of Art



This week's CST virtual 'Zoom Dementia Cafe' had an art appreciation theme. Members brought a photo of their favourite painting to the session, or something they themselves had created. This was a lovely way to introduce the session.


As usual, we used the 'screen share' feature to share photographs and music videos. Some quiz questions brought the session to life and made it more fun. Our 'virtual prize' was a 'Painting By Numbers' kit. (We also recommended the 'ColorPlanet: Oil Painting Game' app, which is available on both Android and ioS play stores.)
