by shlomit & ida

Creative Arts Playfulness.jpg

WHEN: September 29th 2023 7:00-9:30pm

WHERE: BushBox NYC 286 Stanhope Street, Brooklyn, NY 11237.

WHAT:

What would happen if you permitted yourself to be more playful and creative?

Ida & Shlomit, in collaboration with BushBox NYC, invite you to immerse yourself in a playful experience to enhance your quality of life!

 

As adults, we get stuck in the seriousness of life. We stop being playful, believing that play is just for kids. However, engaging in play is fundamental in our stressful lives. Play allows us to release endorphins, improve brain functionality, and stimulate creativity.

We invite you to awaken your playful self for a happier life through the power of the Creative Arts, using tools such as storytelling, art-making, acting, meditation, and movement in community.

HOW MUCH: Sliding scale price $60.00-$90.00

You may pay through this website in the link bellow or pay via Venmo to @Shlomit-oren

what is creative arts?

Creative arts  is the use of visual arts, music, drama, dance/movement, sound, poetry/writing, play and meditation in a supportive setting to facilitate growth and healing. It is a process of discovering ourselves through any art form that comes from an emotional depth. It is not about creating art that is "pretty" or ready for the stage. It is about authentically expressing inner feelings by creating outer forms. A fun and deep experience!
