On a warm Spring day, clients from the Arcare Templestowe community took a bus trip to visit the Heide Museum of Modern Art in Bulleen.
The entrance to the Heide museum and cafe was absolutely breathtaking, with many clients stopping to take and pose for a few photos. Some of the sculptures provided the clients with excellent photo opportunities, with a few sticking their heads through to pose.
“It’s such a beautiful day!” One client exclaimed. “We take in this beautiful art, while enjoying a cup of tea at the cafe” Another suggested.
For morning tea, the clients a hot cup of coffee and some homemade scones with jam and fresh cream.
The clients enjoyed soaking up the beautiful sun, as well as the various art pieces that were on display.
“It always great, when our clients are able to get out and about, to engage with the community and enjoy a nice meal.” Lifestyle coordinator, Noelene said.
