Last Friday I took some of my art therapy clients out to the start park to visit the botanical gardens! Since I am a disabled veteran I get a free lifetime military pass to the FL start parks and with that pass I can take in 7 people with me for free. So, Veterans Village, one of my internship sites, put me on their insurance so I could drive their van and I took a few people to the park. I gave the vets that came with me a art scavenger hunt form - it had things like this: "find something red or pink and sketch it", "find something smooth/rough and name it" and "find a place to sit that has a nice view...draw what you see and name what you hear." The idea was to get them to use as many senses as possible. We had a GREAT time and really enjoyed ourselves. Here are some photos that I took:
It was a great outing and quite different from what we normally do! Hopefully I can take some people out to somewhere different before my internship is over. Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!
