The residents of Portofino Villas in Pomona, CA, have taken on a challenging craft: paper quilling, an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. Participants kept their motivation on a high note as they watched tutorial videos with interest and enjoyed every minute of the class. For the first project, they used a comb; for the second project of the month, they tried a more complex technique using a different tool. The culminating project was making a framed garden piece for all to enjoy in the community room. The participants love to be challenged and are always ready to learn new techniques. They have developed good skills, display artistic creativity, and they are always proud of their beautiful finished work!
