Letting life talk through pict_0

Born in 1924, despite requiring a walking stick or wheelchair to get around, 92-year-old grandmother Zhao-zhi (招治) still has sharp eyesight, good health and clear thinking. Illiterate and unable to hold a pen, learning to draw was both painful and required strenuous effort. For a time she wanted to give up, but thanks to continuous encouragement from her family, she slowly learned to apply color, cut and paste, tear and stick, do jigsaw puzzles, and finally paint. To date, Zhao-zhi has persevered in painting for more than six years, and now spends 2-3 hours a day in this newfound pursuit. Painting not only stops her from getting bored, but has also allowed her to embark on a new and exiting journey in life.

Her youngest daughter Li Li-hua (李丽花) said: “So far my mother has already produced several hundred paintings, each and every one of which is completely unique.” After witnessing how painting helped focus and stimulate her mother’s mind, she now encourages other elderly people to take up painting as a hobby.

让生命〝说画〞

Letting life talk through pict生于民国13年,高龄92岁的招治阿嬷,耳聪目明、身体硬朗、思路清晰,唯有走路膝盖无力需以拐杖或轮椅代步。她不识字且不会拿笔,一开始学画画得非常吃力也很痛苦,一度想放弃;在家人的鼓励下直练习从着色、剪贴、撕贴、拼图,直到自己拿笔画画。到现在,阿嬷持之以恆也画六年多了,目前每天习惯花二、三小时画画,画画不但让她走出无聊的日子,也画出人生下一段精彩旅程。

招治阿嬷的小女儿李丽花表示:母亲的作品截至目前已有好几百张,张张各有特色。她鼓励家中长者试着也拿笔画画,画画可以让长者注意力集中,脑力激荡思考如何完成一幅画。
