I am an art student at Chesterfield College and i have been asked to produce a piece of art work to be displayed in the local hospitals (Walton) new metal health ward. the ward looks after a lot of elderly people who have Alzheimer’s. I am honoured to have been asked to be a part of this task and want to do it well.
I was just wondering if anybody could offer any advice as to what could be suitable. It has to be a 2D illustrated piece.
My college took me to visit the new ward to get a feel for the environment and for advice on the routines and activates that go on in the ward. I am aware that a lot of the wards occupants suffer with anxiety, memory loss and hallucinations so of course I must approach my final out come with care and thorough research. The walls at the moment are a very light mint green and very bare and although very light and airy seem very clinical. i want to do a fairly large piece that has certain calming colours and imagery. is there anybody carers or otherwise that could give me any advice.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post
Hope to hear from someone soon
