Welcome to the World of Mixed Media Painting
Studies have shown that exposure to even small amounts of art and creativity can reduce stress and anxiety. It can even make you smarter by increasing cognitive abilities. According to an article at the University Herald, “Rewarding hobbies like painting, drawing, and photography can reduce a person's stress levels and can help clear your mind.”
Join us for a relaxing stress-free hour of creating mixed media art using acrylic paints and regular household items. No prior art experience necessary.
This workshop has been adapted for an online setting and is presented by The Makery at JMU Libraries.
