Arts for Wellness


Keep your mind and spirit healthy! Come to the ARCC for some drop in, DIY art therapy through self-directed activities! Studies have shown that Art can take your mind off of what is stressing you. No talent? Who Cares??!!! These Open Studio sessions are not product oriented – just enjoy the process! Activities can vary from art journaling, coloring, creative drawing from pattern recognition, scrapping, Zentangle art, and creative writing, or, work on your own projects that you bring from home to work on in a relaxing stress free atmosphere. Sessions meet weekly. Choose the best time of the day that works for you – mornings, afternoons or evenings. Supplies provided for listed activities, or, you may bring your own in! Remember – we aren’t concerned about creating works of art (although it may be a by-product), just the act of letting our activity take us away! Ages 18 and up. No charge.
Thursday Mornings: 10:00 a.m. - Noon
