Creating art is a powerful way to boost your emotional and physical wellbeing. Multiple studies have shown art can help those living with depression, anxiety and stress and it’s been linked to improved memory and resiliency in aging adults. Plus, when you sit in on one of our many art programs here at the Center for Health & Wellbeing, you’ll meet a community of other beginners and it can boost your social wellbeing.
In this program, led by teaching artists Liz Kitchens and Ann Goodpasture, you’ll learn to weave using a simple cardboard loom and kitchen yarn to make “mug rug” coasters. All supplies are included in your program fee, and you’ll leave with something you can be proud to display in your home!
