Crafts with the Dean of the Herberger Institutes for Design and the Arts
Crafts with the Dean: Stress Balls and a discussion with Associate Dean for Culture and Access Melita Belgrave. There have been numerous reports on how effective crafting can be for stress-relief! "When we are involved in (creativity), we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life," Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi said during a TED talk in 2004. "You know that what you need to do is possible to do, even though difficult, and sense of time disappears. You forget yourself. You feel part of something larger." Join Herberger Institute Dean Steven Tepper and Associate Dean for Culture and Access Melita Belgrave as they make stress balls, draw and discuss creativity and the importance of self-care. Be sure to bring the following materials so you can make your own stress ball! 1 large balloon 1 cup flour A funnel (or a piece of paper rolled up and taped to create a funnel) 1 piece of paper, any size Colored pencils or crayons
