Creative expression, at any age, is an enjoyable way to spend time, energize the mind, practice dexterity and, quite simply, let the good feelings flow. When we at The Bristal decided to ask our residents to submit their art work to appear on our holiday card this year, our intention was to engage them in helping us create a truly personal visual message. We also wanted everyone, including our instructors and art therapists, to have fun. What we discovered in the process is that there is a remarkable pool of talent among us. You can still view all of the impressive entries here. We are glad that resident artists, staff and families alike were energized and gratified by the process.
We are so proud of the work exhibited online over this past month, and especially of our winner: Myra Lerner of The Bristal at North Hills. Her beautiful and sensitive painting will create a lovely canvas for our holiday wishes and will be proudly sent out this season.
This effort has been a tremendous success, thanks to our Bristal team and, of course, the talented residents who entered the contest. Thank you to everyone who participated and voted.
