The Hen That Laid The Golden Omelette

Even when the memory and senses fail, people with dementia may experience the joy of creativity through watercolour painting.

This is the liberating message of Barbara Davison and Barbara Potter’s inspiring Sefton Art Project.

In The Hen that Laid the Golden Omelette the authors outline the philosophy and techniques that evolved during their ten years of assisting people with dementia to express themselves in watercolour.

Illustrated with the exuberant and often moving images of the artists themselves, this book challenges the assumption that people with dementia can no longer live productive lives and offers practical advice to those who may follow in their path.
