Willaura Healthcare residents have been channelling their inner Monet and Van Gogh during COVID-19.
Under the guidance of leisure and lifestyle coordinator Michelle Maslen, residents have used acrylic, watercolours and drawn inspiration from sunsets, still life, birds and waterfalls.
Residents involved in the art show include 100-year-old Alma Sloper, Doug Benson, Gary Moloney, Joyce Dunster, Mavis Lovell and Sheila Handscombe.
With restrictions on visitation, Ms Maslen decided that a virtual art show on the East Grampians Health Service Facebook page and other social media platforms was the perfect medium for the community to see residents work.
"It has been wonderful to see the great art work produced by our residents on show on our social media for all the community to see," EGHS chief executive Andrew Freeman said.
"Our residents have been through some challenging times this year, due to not being able to see family and friends in person, but the activities provided by our team at Willaura Healthcare have kept them all engaged and active, and I thank them for their care and enthusiasm."
