Casuarina Grove is the first purpose-built village for people with intellectual disabilities and complex needs associated with ageing. Every year, an Art Exhibition is held displaying the amazing work of residents. Each resident produced paintings on canvas, colouring-in, and stellar photography.
Three sections of their work were displayed. Section A had works of art completed with no support or assistance. Sections B and C represented semi and fully supported works of art, made alongside welcoming staff. An important part of Specialist Supported Living is allowing people’s time to be woven into creative practices and fun-filled activities.
In competitive spirit, the Art Show aimed to find the best three works in every section and art field. This competition was judged by CEO Julia Squire and Hunter and Central Coast General Manager, Julie Melehan.
