A RESOURCE GUIDE FOR OLDER ADULTS

“I Love Watching The Art Grow”
David Swimmer began teaching
drawing to senior citizens after
he retired as an attorney
by Cassie Kibens

Instead of live models David Swimmer uses statuettes to teach drawing
to senior citizens at various locations, including the Cardinal Ritter
Senior Services’ Adult Daycare Program in Shrewsbury.

The teacher heads over to an art table
stressing the importance of shadows to
emphasize the effect of the chin. A few moments later he is back at another table encouraging the student’s work and showing
her how to hold a pencil to achieve a better
and easier sketch.
During the last session of the class a student requests a nude model, so the teacher
complies with a 10-inch statuette made of
wood with moveable limbs that now sits on
the table.
A month after retirement David Swimmer, 67, decided to figure out what he
wanted to be when he grew up. A Clayton
attorney for most of his life, Swimmer finally retired at the end of 2014 and just a few
months later he decided to teach drawing
to senior citizens at adult daycare centers.
Swimmer had not taken a formal art
class until about four years ago, but enjoyed
art from a young age, which contributed to
the after-retirement lifestyle. A museum
visit as a youngster was an inspiration.
“When I was a kid, I had this drunken
dentist,” Swimmer said. “He didn’t drink
when he practiced, but he had like a tremor and I did what any kid would do when I
had a tremor inside my face, I bit him. And
my mother told me that if I didn’t bite Dr.
Jolly, she would take me to the art museum
and show me ‘Hercules Battles the Hydra.’”
Swimmer grew up in University City,
attended University City High School and

eventually left to go to law school to avoid
being drafted during the Vietnam War. His
two children, Ghram, 38, and Hannah, 33,
both support his after-retirement lifestyle
and so does his second wife, Mary Pat, who
believes her husband is happier now that
he is teaching instead of practicing law.
Swimmer does not know why he ended
up teaching to senior citizens, but he is
grateful that he has had the opportunity
to work with them. Some of the students
Swimmer instructs have dementia and other intellectual issues. Drawing seems to be
a positive outlet for them.
“People who do not have a lot of verbal command of language anymore can be
wonderful, persuasive artists,” Swimmer
said. “They get to be young adults again.
They’re learning something. They get to
apply themselves, and then it’s real when
they’re through. They display it in their
room. They send it to their grandchildren.”
It is not easels and special sketching
pencils Swimmer uses to teach the class, it
is printer paper and old-fashioned number
two pencils. The models? There are none.
They’re too expensive and they tend to take
breaks, said Swimmer. Instead, he uses
various statuettes, many no taller than 10
inches. Classes tend to last about an hour,
as to not go on for too long and lose the attention of his pupils.
“These people don’t have an infinite span
of attention,” Swimmer said. “They don’t

Teaching Drawing To Seniors

concentrate often, and after an hour
they’re exhausted. And I want to stop
when they still want to work.”
Swimmer teaches gesture drawing,
which involves a different grip of the
pencil, often almost parallel with the
table, and uses the person’s shoulder
and entire body to draw, not just the
wrist. He learned this technique while
training with the St. Louis Artists
Guild. Swimmer teaches 25-30 sessions a month at about two-dozen different places around St. Louis.
“I am so grateful that I am doing
what I’m doing,” Swimmer said. “In
old cartoons, when somebody would
have an idea, there would be a light
bulb that would turn on. I get to watch
that every week. I call it, an ‘ah-hah’
moment.”
When Swimmer is not teaching
drawing he is reading or cruising
around on his 1000cc Yamaha motorcycle. The motorcycle may have some
power, but Swimmer says he goes so

slow that bugs settle in the back of his
helmet, not just the front.
Seniors look forward to his arrival.
He is often the youngest one in the
room, which he gets a kick out of.
“I feel privileged that they look
forward to my showing up,” he said.
“Many of them can’t remember my
name, so I’m ‘the kid.’ And because I’m
67, I love to be ‘the kid.’”
Swimmer said his older art students are capable of learning, though
teaching new techniques can require
patience.
“I love watching the art grow,”
Swimmer said. “If a Higher Power is
light, and if everybody has a seed of
creativity, I’m the rusty watering can.
And if these people get watered, something will grow. And I love to see what
happens. I can literally watch God’s
actions when I see these people create.”

Once individuals retire they may
discover a newfound freedom in their
schedule with time to devote to hobbies and pastimes they enjoy.
According to research, hobbies can
have many benefits. They may serve
as an emotional outlet or a way to relax. Hobbies can keep the mind and
hands active. They also allow for quiet time and mind wandering – which
can free up creative thinking. Hobbies
can also serve as a means to connecting with people and opening up new
groups of friends.
There are many hobbies to consider, depending on physical health and
abilities. These may be hobbies one
once enjoyed in the past or new activities to expand one’s horizons. And
hobbies need not be crafty in the traditional sense; just about any activity
– even being a mentor – can be a form
of a hobby.
Starting A Hobby
When deciding on a hobby, first
take an inventory of skills and interests. For someone who has always
been handy around wood and construction, perhaps a woodworking
hobby will be enjoyable and also may
work as a source of income revenue.
Other activities that require the
use of the hands and mind include
knitting, needlepoint, painting, puzzles, quilting, scrapbooking and crocheting. These can keep the mind
active and improve dexterity and fine
motor skills.
Next, consider the costs surround-

ing a hobby. While taking photos may
have relatively low costs, collectibles,
exotic sports, sports cars and travel
could become expensive.
Also, visit a local hobby shop or
craft store and browse through the
aisles. From building model trains to
cultivating an herb garden, there are
dozens of ideas to try.
Other pastimes
A hobby can take the form of volunteer work, teaching, mentoring, joining a martial arts class, taking classes at a college, and even caring for a
pet. Those who like to interact with
other people instead of engaging in a
solitary hobby, consider one of these
types of activities instead.
Once a hobby is started, it is not set
in stone. If it doesn’t work out or isn’t
enjoyable, try something else.

First Herbs, Now Retirement Center Adds
Bees, Thanks To Barbara Perry Lawton
When the gardening expert moved to Cape Albeon she
initiated herb garden and beehive projects for all to enjoy
by Linda Jarrett

For most of her 84 years, Barbara
Perry Lawton has delved into the
world of flowers and plants, and
shared her expertise.
As an award-winning writer,
author, speaker and photographer,
she has written extensively on
gardening and horticulture.
Now, she can add beekeeping to
her resume.
Lawton, a long-time Kirkwood
resident who now resides at Cape
Albeon retirement community in
Valley Park, thought the expansive
grounds would be the perfect place
for an herb garden.
She brought the idea to Food
Service Director David Gomes and
Head Chef Mark DuBro who agreed,
and Lawton started planting basil,
fennel, rosemary and a host of other
herbs.
From there, Lawton said the
progression to beekeeping seemed a
“natural” thing to do.
“We’ve got a great chef who likes
to use honey, and I just felt that this
was an ideal spot,” she said.
After convincing many of the
residents that there would not be
swarms of bees disturbing them, they
found beekeeper Spring Shutt.

bees at Principia High School for

two years, said her mentor, Sandy
Brooks, set up hives at Cape Albeon.
Brooks asked Shutt if she would like
to take them over.
Cape Albeon paid for the bees and
the two hives, each of which contain
70,000 bees. During the first year
bees produced four gallons of honey.
“Usually you don’t get much the
first year,” Shutt said. “Our bees did
extremely well, so we had a bumper
crop and expect more this year. “
“Ideally you get two harvests,”
Lawton said. “One in July and one in
September.”
Head Chef DuBro said he didn’t
know anything about bees until the
operation got started.
“We were buying honey for our
cooking and thought it would be great
to have our own honey,” he said.
The benefits of eating local honey
are well-documented.
“It has to do with the plants in the
area,” Shutt said. “The pollen is in
the honey, and if you eat the honey,
you’re building up an immunity
against the pollen in your area. So,
not only is it good for you, it supports
local businesses.”
Bees travel in a two-mile radius
to find flowers and plants to gather
pollen and pollinate,” Shutt said.

Cape Albeon Residents Reap Bees’ Bounty from page 8-PT
“They get pollen on their legs,
put in pollen sacks and carry
it back to the hive.
“As they fly, they create
static electricity and pollen
literally jumps on their
legs into these little yellow
bags,” she said. “They get all
different colors of pollen, and
that creates different flavors
of honey.”
DuBro calls Lawton an
inspiration.
“We work together, and
we realized that, with the
shortage of honey bees, what
a good way to incorporate
something here, help the bee

for cooking,” DuBro said.

Advice To Help Keep Senior Athletes Moving
Athletes are used to pushing
themselves and stretching their
limits, but some limits are best not
pushed. Such is the case with the
limits posed by aging. While athletes
don’t have to completely hang up
their athletic equipment as they
approach senior citizen status, there
are steps senior athletes can take
to ensure they aren’t pushing their
bodies too far as they grow older.
Senior athletes must recognize
their new recovery time. Where a
sprained ankle might once have been
as good as new after a few days of
rest, aging athletes must recognize
that the same ankle sprain now
might require more recovery time.
Returning too quickly from an injury
can only make things worse.
Gradually increasing warm up
time with age is a good idea, as
it helps ready the body for more
strenuous exercise.
As the body ages, it becomes less
flexible, which makes it less capable
of successfully handling the repetitive

Swimming is good exercise for all
ages.
movements common to exercise.
Focus on flexibility and stretch
muscles before and after a workout.

muscle. But the body gradually loses
muscle mass as it ages, and that loss
puts the joints under greater stress
when other exercises are performed.
That stress can put people at greater
risk for arthritis, tendinitis and
ligament sprains. While maxing out
on the bench press or challenging
oneself on the biceps curl might be
overkill, strength training should
continue to be a part of any fitness
regimen.
Senior
athletes
need
not
cease their athletic pursuits. But
recognizing the changes a body goes
through and the limitations that age
brings is an important element of
staying healthy in older adulthood.

Kitchen Help When Cooking
For One Or Two Individuals
Seniors face many changes as
they move into their golden years
including how to scale back in the
kitchen. While it seems like reducing
food portions would be easy, those
used to prepping meals for a large
family may find it difficult. The
following tips can make meal
preparation efficient and costeffective.
• Divide and store. Supermarkets
are increasingly offering larger
packages of food products as well
as “family size” offerings to compete
with warehouse clubs. If buying in
bulk, invest in a food vacuum sealer
or freezer storage bags. Immediately
separate meats and poultry into
smaller portions before storing them
in the freezer. Otherwise, look for
bulk items that are individually
wrapped to maintain freshness.
Many canned and jarred items
can be covered and stored in the
refrigerator after containers are
opened.
• Plan meals with similar
ingredients. To reduce food waste,
use leftovers to create casseroles
or mix them in with new meals.
Broiled or grilled chicken can be
used to make soups, stir-fry dishes,
fajitas and sandwiches. The fewer
ingredients you have to buy, the
smaller the risk of spoilage.
• Cut recipes in half. Recipes
can be cut down depending on how
many mouths need to be fed. When
baking, cutting back on proportions

of ingredients can be challenging.
Search online for recipe-scaling
programs that can make the work
easier.
• Cook on the weekend. Use a
weekend day to prepare food and
package it into small containers in
the refrigerator or freezer. Then
the containers can be taken out as
needed and heated quickly in the
microwave for fast meals.
• Organize a meal-sharing club.
Get together with a few friends and
split cooking duties. If accustomed
to cooking larger portion sizes, do
so and then spread the wealth with
others in the group.
