Pick up a paint brush this August and socialise with friends

Published: 09 Aug 2022

Creating art is a great way to nurture your social and emotional health. Join NVC Group’s Sip and Paint sessions this August and be guided through making your own art piece while enjoying the company of other people.

NVC Group Recreational Activities Officer Anne Winwood said she had gathered pretty paints, brushes and canvases ready for the Monday Madness sessions.

“Art is great as it provides an outlet for self-expression with maximum freedom,” Ms Winwood said.

“There is no right or wrong way to do art and the freedom that comes from this is rejuvenating and enjoyable for every participant.

“Add to the mix sharing a cuppa and conversation with other residents over the age of 65, and I think we have a winning recipe for a great morning out.”  

Nambucca Valley residents can attend a Monday Madness session in Macksville on Monday 15 August or Nambucca on Monday 22 August.

To join in, residents will need a social group referral from the Australian Government My Aged Care and it costs $10 per session. NVC Group can assist with this, so call (02) 6598 5000 or email communitynvc@nvcl.org.au to find out more.

If art is not your thing, there’s a heap of other great social activities on offer in the mornings during August. Catch up with Ms Winwood and others in Macksville on Tuesdays and Thursdays or in Nambucca Heads on Wednesdays and Fridays and choose your activity which can range from bingo, word games and stories to music games or even optical illusion fun.

Social activities are delivered in Macksville at Daisy Cottage in Short Street and in Nambucca at Riverside Gardens village, Riverside Drive.
