Whether you make a single sketch, strum a single string, or fold a single paper, finding just a minuscule amount of time to feel creative is key to galvanizing your artistic capabilities. Aside from unveiling your own creative side, it can also be a way to better your skills, discover something new, or even finding your inspiration. Many different parts of our brain are engaged when we craft – our focus, memory, problem solving, and information processing, to name a few. Crafting is more than just a fun hobby; just a few minutes per day can contribute to your overall health and wellbeing. Staying creative benefits your brain health and wellness, two important tenets of AARP New York’s focus. Potentiate your creative capabilities with IAC’s upcoming classes.
