"Express Yourself" with Amy Barry
“Express Yourself” with Amy Barry, at the Greene Art Gallery
In this workshop for adults, held in the Greene Art Gallery sculpture garden, Amy J. Barry, an expressive arts educational facilitator, will lead a variety of creative art and writing exercises that help participants explore the intuitive, imagistic right side of the brain and transform negative thoughts and emotions into positive, life-affirming responses.
Studies have proven that if stress isn’t released, the immune system becomes depleted, which over time, causes health problems. Research shows that expressive and creative arts boost the immune system by releasing blocked energy and reversing the stress response, which makes people feel better.
