ENGAGING MILLENNIAL MINDS

Be Kind to Yourself
TAKE TIME TO RELAX

With all of life’s responsibilities, we forget that we need and deserve ‘down time’ and self-care.

Studies have shown a measurable reduction in stress levels after a 45-minute art making session. Hear about the benefits of art therapy on reducing your stress level and explore your creative side with clay.

There are many reasons why art is a great stress relief tool, even for those who don’t consider themselves to be artists. You can use the benefits of art to express your creative side and reduce your stress and get in touch with your feelings. It’s difficult to keep ruminating on your problems when you’re focused on creating, and if your problems stay with you, you can incorporate them into your creations. Creating art also carries many of the benefits of meditation, leaving you much less stressed when you’re done.

Enjoy light refreshments, and a chance to win fabulous door prizes.
