Creativity And The Mind

The Miller Art Museum invites anyone interested to attend a free program on March 13. The program will be held in the lower level of the Sturgeon Bay Library. Coffee/treats will be served at 10 am and the program begins at 10:30 am.

The Creativity and the Mind presentation explains how creativity gives people a better quality of life by keeping the mind engaged through art, movement, and music.

Engaging in creativity promotes well-being through connection to one’s own inner expression, emotion, and communication with people, the community, and culture through an unspoken language. It also gives one a sense of accomplishment, enjoyment, and engagement and leads to higher self-esteem, healthy relationships, and overall mental and psychological health. The program will feature a screening of I Remember Better When I Paint.

Jennifer Aldrich will lead the program. She has been teaching healing arts since 2003 where she began teaching in Florida with developmentally challenged adults, at-risk youth in poverty, and more recently in Wisconsin, individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease through the former Legacy Arts Inc. in Green Bay. She is an adjunct professor in art history at Lakeland College, as well as a painter and photographer.
