PAINTING AT THE SOUTH BUCKS HOSPICE
Since May 1996 members of Hughenden Art Group have supported painting sessions with patients at the South Bucks Hospice.
The Art Group Members, none of whom are tutors or professional artists, attend on a rota basis on Monday mornings to guide and encourage patients to paint. Most of the work is in watercolour. Before attending sessions supported by the Hughenden Art Group few of the patients had put brush to paper in their lives, and they are often surprised to find that they have a latent talent.
The Art Group fulfills the need for art materials i.e. paper, paints, brushes etc., for this project and is grateful to Missenden Matins which kindly funds this project.
Some of the work produced by the patients can be seen on the display boards at the hospice.
