Joyce gets arty at Bristol Museum

on . .

Riversway resident Joyce is a big art lover and was delighted to get the chance to visit a Leonardo da Vinci exhibition at Bristol Museum.


Joyce’s father was an engineer who could often be found drawing machines, and her uncle worked on cruise ships, sketching. They both taught her the ‘secrets of art and drawing’ and Joyce was the first person we thought of when we were offered the chance to take part in the free activity.


Joyce joined a number of other people from care homes and community groups, and together with artist and sculptor Freya and volunteers, even joined in with an experimental cooperative art activity.


The activity saw them draw a self portrait with their eyes closed, guided by one hand touching their own face. The results were very abstract, but were designed to help those taking part discover new ways to perceive themselves.


Joyce had a lovely morning and we’d like to thank everyone who made it possible.
