Some Amazing Health and wellness benefits for doing an Art Soiree
Research has suggested that creative activities relax the brain, by encouraging the release of endorphins into the body, making you feel good and happy, lower stress levels, blood pressure and relax the heart rate!
Being involved in creative activities is like a meditation- where you are using another side of your brain.Creative activities have been shown to Your problem solving ability is heightened when the mind is relaxed allowing you to mentally perform better and solve problems. Decision making is usually more powerful after doing something creative. ‘Ah Ha’ moments are more prevalent after creative rest.
Emotionally you will feel less drained and uptight. When the body is relaxed so is the mind, and the Spirit is free and a natural sense of peace and abundance resides within you. When this happens, you begin to realize just how stressed out our Life style can be and this realization may pave the way for you to create a few positive changes in your life.
What if I have no experience painting?
“It was not as hard as what I thought, I loved the food, and the music seemed to help me get into the mood”.
Do not worry if you have not painted since primary school! The beauty of these Art Soirees is that all you have to do is show up on our door step and we do the rest!
You will be shown what to do, and you will have the opportunity to be as creative as you like. Wherever you are at is where we start with you and your group.
“Wanda helped us feel welcome and relaxed and demonstrated each art skill one step at a time. I just loved playing with the paint and the stencils. I got totally engrossed in my painting. Everybody created something different and they all looked professional! I had not realised the 3 hours went that quickly- highly recommend Art Soiree to any group. I had so much fun!”
