This visual essay documents activities conducted during a workshop in an independent living facility in Vancouver, British Columbia. The workshop provided seniors with an opportunity to create sock monkeys as an avenue to engage with various materials in space and time. We illuminate the impact that the visual art making activity had among seniors in this retirement centre. We observe that completion is not an end of learning, instead it is a state of continuing change that invites the seniors to explore possibilities.
