Cedric, who really likes to paint, chose which colors he wanted to use and then used his fingers on top of saran wrap to move the paint around into this design.

Denise loves butterflies and her room is entirely butterfly themed. With Dalenna, her DSP, they created this butterfly collage out of tissue paper and toy butterflies.


Every Halloween or special occasion, Ernie chooses to dress up as a security officer or policeman. He also enjoys “Coffee with Cops” hosted by the Second District Police Officers before COVID. With a lot of help from Google and Kristen, his DSP, they made him police car to go around his wheelchair.


Lindley’s mother, who passed away about two years ago, loved sunflowers. This picture is a tribute to his mom who loved sunflowers and Lindley, who enjoys looking at pictures.


Michael likes the Chipmunks and so he chose to color a picture of the Chipmunks with colored pencils.


Broccoli is an inside joke with Neil and the staff at Parma House. He even has a huge stuffed broccoli that he got for his 60th birthday. With the help of Tranish, his DSP, they drew and painted a picture of broccoli and then used nails in wood to trace a picture of broccoli with string.


Terry used his finger to paint with saran wrap and chose Cleveland Indians’ colors – red and blue.  

Blossom & Haven Houses

The individuals and staff at Blossom & Haven Houses (on Abbey Road) decided to do a collage of canvas paintings as their submission. Each individual did a handprint onto the canvas and then they put all the canvases together around the message “Proud to Be Me!” that was created by Elisha, a DSP. Each person’s canvas is unique to the colors and designs that they like.
