Dance, dance, and then dance some more!

Want to show gratitude? Try dancing. Visit JMKAC's Library Sculpture Garden between July 27 and September 30 to join a collaborative dance video that is part of our Tokens of Appreciation exhibition. Find the motion-activated camera (toward the center of the glass windows on the east side of the garden) and do a dance as a tribute to someone or something special in your life. Here are helpful hints for creating your Tokens of Appreciation dance.

Humans were created to move. Speaking, writing, singing, dancing, painting, and using a tool, are just a few actions that begin with a small movement that transforms into something more. Connect with and feel the power you host inside and send the energy out through your limbs! Tap your fingers, bob your head, swing your hips, or dance like you have a bee chasing you!

Art kits are available to pick-up on Thursday, July 30 from 6–8:00 p.m. in the circle driveway at JMKAC. 

Take care of yourself by remembering you were made to move. Use the ribbon included in the art kit to help you get started. Need music? Listen to a curated playlist created by JMKAC each week.

 

GratitudeLetterProject

Gratitude Letter Project

Writing a thank-you note can lift your mood—and cheer up the person who receives it. Want to be a part of this win-win proposition?  

Write and send a gratitude letter using stationery created by Between You and Me artist Christine Wong Yap. Yap’s work investigates positive psychology, including two-way mood-boosters such as thank-you notes. Join in her Gratitude Letter Project, which will culminate in a Sheboygan mailbag of gratitude. Easy instructions can be found at socialstudio.space.
