Lego Your Stress

Stop by the Lego Table in Scholes Library

In the rush to finish final essays, papers, projects, prepare for critiques, presentations and exams the end of semester is a stressful time. Take a break from the hectic pace and give yourself a moment to relax and de-stress in a creative way at the Scholes Library Lego table.

Drop in during library hours to build a creation. Feel free to fill out a “show card” with the title of your work and credit to the artist (that would be you) and display it in our “Lego Gallery”.
The Lego table can be found in Scholes Library on the first floor and will be available now through finals week.gianni lego
A recent study published in Art Therapy indicates that a creative activity can be great way to let go of stress.  To read more, go to the Herrick or Scholes home page, select the purple “Article” tab and enter the title, “Reduction of Cortisol Levels and Participants’ Responses Following Art Making” in the search box.  You can also follow this link to the article.  If you are not on the Alfred University campus you will be prompted to log in with your ITS credentials.
Stop by and Lego your stress today!
