Art project to gain inspiration from lighthouses
The social mobilisation and intervention programme, Ansina of Ten erife Cabildo begins in July an art therapy activity under the title “Legends of a lighthouse.”
It aims to bring the elderly of the island a new vision of these facilities and to give them inspiration to put what they feel and see on canvas. Thus, in groups of 30, they will be placed in the surroundings and will reflect, on a canvas, their particular vision of what they observe.
Councillor of social action, Coromoto Yanes, said that “this new activity, which we start in July with great enthusiasm, is in the line of betting on the active aging that we promote through Ansina. We want our elders to be good with themselves and to express their feelings with art.”
The project will start with a visit to the Abona Lighthouse (El Porís, Arico) and continue with Anaga (Igueste de San Andrés), La Farola del Mar (Santa Cruz de Tenerife), La Punta Lighthouse (Punta del Hidalgo) and Rasca Lighthouse (El Palmar, Arona).
