art and arthritis

hello -

I'm looking for some information regarding art and arthritis. In
particular: What are the types of art production better suited for people
with arthritis? (For example, might the motions involved in potterymaking
be easier on arthritis sufferers rather than oil painting.) Are there
ideas or suggestions to make art production less painful for those
suffering from arthritis? (For example, using large brushes that are
easier to hold rather than small brushes.) Any comments are greatly
appreciated.

thanks.
