“Lebenskünstler” is a German word that connotes a person who approaches life with the zest and inspiration of an artist, although he or she may not be working recognizably as an artist. I feel I've encountered "Lebenskünstler" individuals quite often in various art programs I've offered over the years, especially at McAuley House.
Thanks to all the guests for sharing your work on our blog 💙
I always have such a great time creating with the guests that attend the afternoon activity program. Some of the guests haven't had the opportunity to get creative in a long time, while some have been creating or crafting for years.
The collage below was designed by a young man that hadn't made art since he was a child. However, he was exceptionally artistic in many other ways. So, when he started making this collage from scraps that I had sitting in a box he was focused on not only designing but recycling the pieces that had dropped on the floor. He was so precise with the placement of his materials.
Our artists are working hard getting ready for the upcoming art show in June.
Save the date- June 22, 2017, McAuley House Art Show, Thursday, 5-7:30 pm
