Counteracting Everyday Stress and Worry – Creatively
In this world of stress and worry, isn’t it good to know there are simple everyday things you can do to counteract it? One surefire way is to get your mind off of it and do something positive. Art, as we know, can affect us in many different ways. You can express your feeling using art. You can turn your negative feelings into positive feelings just by the beauty of something you see. It can unlock your fears and insecurities about creating and push you toward doing something that you may have never done before, like picking up a paintbrush, coloring with your kids or photographing images that inspire you. It’s really that simple.
That is why I love the Creative Lounge and encourage you to find out more about it. The Creative Lounge, owned by Armineh Havan, had a ribbon cutting and grand opening in March. The Creative Lounge is an art studio with a twist! Not only does Armineh offer workshops and classes for kids and adults, she also offers open studio time when you can drop in and just “create.”
Here is Armineh’s promise and vision to anyone who comes to the Creative Lounge: “If you make the required investment in and commitment to yourself and the offerings at the Creative Lounge, my promise to you is this: To guide you along the path to discovering and embracing your true self, as well as providing you with the tools to communicate through creativity; to teach you that by providing the ideal setting children expressing themselves through art can build their self-esteem and grow up healthy and confident with an increased freshness and joyful participation in life; to inspire you to see the world in color; to challenge you to not limit yourself to conventional methods and means and to experiment, explore and realize that you are limitless; to provide you with a relaxing and friendly environment; to give you the tools, support, environment, validation and reinforcement to live your dream.”
