Come learn and experience the benefits of taking a break and getting in touch with your inner child! Adult coloring has been spreading like wildfire as people are learning how great it is for stress relief (and we all know in our busy lives we could use some of that!) It has been compared to meditation in its benefits, which include reducing anxiety, increasing the ability to focus, helping you to be more in the moment (also called mindfulness), improving your mind's organizational and problem-solving abilities, as well as helping to cultivate more creativity in your life. In this workshop you will be introduced to these benefits, and then experience through practice how great making coloring a part of your life can be! No artistic skills are required. There will be coloring pages, crayons, and colored pencils available for you to enjoy! Feel free to bring your own coloring implements and books if you have some favorites.
