      A group of residents from Aberdeen's Dee View Court have joined forces with
      the City Council's Arts Development team to create their own water-inspired
      works of art.

      They worked together to create special blinds that will screen the centre's
      hydrotherapy pool. These will be officially unveiled this afternoon
      (Tuesday).

      Sue Ryder Care Aberdeen, known as Dee View Court, is a purpose-built
      facility that provides long-term residential care for people with
      degenerative neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's
      Disease and Huntington's Disease.

      The group of adults spent six weeks working with Community Arts Officers
      Mandy Clarke and Alison Watson, with support from recreational therapy staff
      at Dee View Court.

      They used the theme of water as inspiration and the finished artworks
      included sand casts, silk paintings, collages, rubbings, wheelchair art,
      prints and digital photography.

      Each of the creations was scanned and photographed then designed into roller
      blinds, which were digitally printed and installed in the hydrotherapy room.

      Mandy said: "The project has been a lot of fun for the residents. It has
      given them a real sense of achievement and ownership of the hydrotherapy
      room and they are rightly very proud of their creations and the final
      artwork. They are looking forward to officially unveiling the new blinds
      today."

      Everyone involved in the Hydro Art project will join the residents for the
      unveiling ceremony.

      The project was part-funded through Friends of Dee View Court and Aberdeen
      City Council, including the Common Good Fund.

      * Aberdeen City Council's Arts Development team provides a comprehensive
      range of arts activities both at its city centre base, WhiteSpace on
      Frederick Street, and at outreach venues in the regeneration areas of the
      City.

      The team works in partnership with outside agencies and Council services,
      with the aim of encouraging local community capacity building and personal
      development while increasing the opportunity for local people to access the
      arts and culture in exciting and innovative ways.
