Reduce Stress Through Art

By in In The Community on October 26, 2016


At any skill level, making art reduces stress.

Initially it was thought that people with prior art experience reaped more stress-reducing benefits when creating art, but a new study at Drexel University shows that that is not the case!

Whether you’re a complete novice or a master painter, we all see a significant reduction in Cortisol (stress-related hormone) after just 45-minutes of an art class.

Participants in the study reflected on their experience saying. “It was very relaxing,” one wrote. “After about five minutes, I felt less anxious. I was able to obsess less about things that I had not done or need[ed] to get done. Doing art allowed me to put things into perspective.”

So kick back with us on Wednesdays and enjoy The Art of Drawing: Figure Drawing Class with John Cox @ 6:30pm, starting in November.

Participants are asked to bring drawing materials/utensils of their choice.

4 Class Packages:
Members – $160

Wine accompanies each session.
