NSU Art Museum’s Creativity Exploration workshops promote the benefits of creative exploration and the mind-to-body experience. Studies have shown that just 45 minutes of creative activity a day can reduce stress and improve mental clarity and well-being. Expand your perceptions of forms as you increase brain connectivity through visual and cognitive stimulation in this virtual workshop designed by educator Lark Keeler, a specialist in mindfulness education.
Inspired by the myths and ancient stories of humankind, Kiki Smith weaves folktales and fairytales into fantastical sculptures, and works on paper. She investigates these stories and presents them to the viewer in installations and sculptures that spark wonderment and curiosity for the mystical qualities that come through in her work. Using glass, textiles, printmaking, porcelain and metal, Smith invites us into a magical realm of storytelling through her use of objects, symbolism, and masterful installation and assemblage.
