A sheltered housing complex in Moray has run pencil drawing class for pensioners to show that people are never too old to learn new skills.
The Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) and Prudential have been organising sessions to give older people the opportunity to try something they have never done before.
The latest workshop involved local artist Donald Jack leading a drawing class at the Linkwood View complex in Elgin.
Basic techniques were taught, which can help with concentration and coordination, before the participants drew their own creations.
Research done by the RVS has found that 65% of people over 60 years old have wanted to try a new activity but half of them think there are not enough opportunities to do so.
The charity has launched the First Time for Everything programme across the country to address the shortage.
Ian Menzies, the group’s activity coordinator in Moray, said: “It’s been wonderful to see so many local people enjoying our First Time for Everything activities.
“Thanks to funding from Prudential, we have lots more exciting events coming up and hope that even more older people, their carers and families will come along. It’s never too late to try something for the first time.”
The next event will also be held at Linkwood View and will be a music session with gongs on Wednesday, July 10 at 2pm.
