As the season changes and days become shorter, we can often feel a little bit of the winter blues. When the world around us shifts, we also must be mindful that taking care of ourselves may look different. Practicing art and embracing our own creativity can help us feel grounded and allows us to practice self-care. Please join us for a free Paint Night to take care of ourselves as we enter the winter season.
Date: November 24th 2021
Kisa MacIsaac, RRC grad and owner of Power of Painting, will (virtually) lead you through an evening of self-care as you create your very own painting.
THRIVE events encourage balance and self-care that in turn supports good mental health. All THRIVE events are offered at no charge to participants and are open to staff, students, and faculty.
For this virtual paint night, you’re welcome to use your own supplies or sign up to borrow a supply pack. Supply packs will include the canvas, paint, and brushes and can be requested when you register. Brushes and unused paint must be returned to your campus so they can be reused.
We have a limited number of supply packs, so be sure to register early.
There is abundant evidence that taking time to express ourselves through creativity in a social group improves mental health and overall well-being. Don’t miss this chance to make yourself a priority.
