The residents of Morning Pointe of Chattanooga – Shallowford brought the fun of the ocean to the Tennessee Valley with some beautiful seashell canvas art. When a volunteer returned from the beach with a bag full of seashells, the residents of the assisted living community knew they had to turn these shells into works of art.
 
Holly Holcomb, the Life Enrichment director at Morning Pointe of Chattanooga – Shallowford explains how the residents created their canvases, “After painting the shells in several shades of blue and purple, they [the residents] painted their canvas with watercolor to make a sheer, pale color for the background.
Then they glued on each shell in a pattern of their choosing and added small beads to fill in the gaps.” The residents were very proud of the resulting creations, Ms. Holcomb said, “[The residents’] artwork turned out beautiful, and now we are waiting for our volunteer to head to the beach again soon so we can find new things to do with her next contribution.”
 
"The majority of our communities include spaces dedicated to creating art. Residents can initiate a project on their own, join in on instructive sessions or watch local artists at work. Art is a recognized form of therapy, no matter a person’s level or ability, and often these projects are on display in the community," officials said.
