Darlene teaches Art Therapy for Seniors at several retirement homes/care facilities.

Darlene provides a variety of different materials and everyone enjoys the sessions.
from the Fairview Mennonite Home in Cambridge, Ontario:

from the Woodhall Park Retirement Village in Brampton, Ontario
"…Darlene helps them refresh their skills. Her patience, kindness and gentle nature encourage even the very beginners to draw. The residents are often pleasantly surprised by what they are able to accomplish and eager to come back for more. Everyone comes away from her programs smiling and happy!! In fact I’m hoping to increase the frequency of the program because of the joy it brings to those involved."
