Wellness Through Creativity
Coming in January 2022
This workshop is designed to help people develop their own regular visual artistic practice through a variety of mediums and instruction. Participants will meet once a week in person or on-line to explore a variety of media depending what is available to us at this time and place. Printing making, drawing and art appreciation are just some of the possibilities. I would welcome developing this around the personal interests of participants.
We have known for a long time that engaging in creative activity, on a regular basis, plays a strong role in our sense of well-being. Yet only recently has science shown us why this is true. Whether we are cooking or drawing, dancing or writing, the arts affect our brain chemistry, stimulates chemicals that improve how we feel about ourselves and how we see the world. Now more than ever artistic practices can help us navigate the world we are living in, but sometimes this is hard to do on our own; sometimes we tell ourselves “but I’m not an artist”; sometimes we need a little help. Interested? For more information contact me.
