Painting with Parkinson’s bookmarks a hit
I was recently joined by the Shadow Minister for Disability Services, Danielle Green to launch a series of bookmarks designed by artists from local group Painting with Parkinson’s.
Painting with Parkinson’s is an art therapy class run by Anne Atkin for those suffering from Parkinson’s.
I had been searching for a new design for my bookmarks for a while and after spending just a few hours with this extraordinary group I knew I had found my artists.
Their obvious joy from the freedom provided by this class was infectious and I had no doubt they would produce a range of outstanding designs.
Although it was a very difficult choice to narrow it down to just eight designs, I was
extremely pleased with the finished product.
I would love for as many people as possible to enjoy the artistry of our local painters. If anyone would like a free bookmark please contact my office 9704 6055.
