Cunningham Downs and Wharparilla Lodge residents showcased their paintings and artworks at an art exhibition on the weekend.
The exhibition, at Cunningham Downs Community Hall, was open to the general public from 1pm to 4pm on Friday, Saturday and yesterday.
Art tutor Ellison Frape, who taught residents art mediums, said it was interesting how everyone had their own style and different strengths.
‘‘They never thought they’d be able to do it, but were amazing when they did,’’ she said.
Mrs Frape started tutoring in Echuca 12 years ago.
This was her last year as a tutor and she has now officially retired.
Mrs Frape said many of the artists only started painting or creating in their 80s.
‘‘Never say you’re too old,’’ she said.
