Chill & Create logo - a human figure stands in front of an easel, painting. One of their legs is made of wood, similar to an artist's mannequin. To their right is giant text that reads "Chill and create."

This unique and hands-on program integrates art viewing, art making and mindfulness strategies to provide students with tools to de-stress, manage anxiety, and develop wellness practices.

During the 2-hour workshop, participants will learn new ways to improve well-being, while benefiting from the positive effects of viewing and making art. No prior art-making experience necessary.

The workshop will be led by Dana Keeton, a local board-certified art therapist and licensed mental health counselor.

Chill & Create is part of the Stanley’s Mindfulness in the Museum programming. We welcome students to the museum from 2:30 to 4 p.m. each Friday to unwind from the week and enter the weekend refreshed.

Registration required and limited to 15 university students.
