A Summer Of Creativity

July 30 2019
Throughout the month of July, residents at The Watermark at Beverly Hills got their creative juices flowing while making a variety of beautiful art pieces. We explored the art of Ebru marbling in honor of our Turkish theme this month. Particularly popular in Turkey and Central Asia, Ebru marbling is a distinctive genre of art used to make mesmerizing works. Ebru pieces are created by transferring designs, patterns, and motifs onto of paper, fabric, and other canvases. Residents utilized the Ebru technique to create gorgeous marbled greeting cards. We also spent time exploring other modern ways to make unique abstract art throughout the month. Craft-lovers enjoyed channeling their inner artist while decorating an edible treat. In celebration of National Cookie Decorating Day, residents made beautiful pressed-flower cookies that looked almost too good to eat!
