Residents at an Exmouth care home have been working with an artist to create pieces which will feature in the town’s art trail.

Earlier this year, artist Angie Seaway set up weekly art workshops for residents at Rose Lodge in Isca Road.

The Exmouth artist has been visiting residents showing them how to use pastels, watercolours and clay to create artwork.

Using the skills Angie has helped them develop, the residents have created pieces which will be exhibited at Seaway Gallery, in Carlton Hill, during the Exmouth Art Trail - taking place from until Sunday, June 4.

Exmouth Art Trail, an interactive route around the town, returns for this year’s Exmouth Festival.

Peter de Groot, co-owner of Rose Lodge, said: “Angie comes with a style that residents love, and her charisma, energy, sense of humour and ability to develop relationships with different people mean that the art group is very popular.”
