Pause & Paint 

NASPA's Wellness & Outside Events are excited to have an event where you can be creative as well as take the time to be reflective. Self-care, connection, and a little bit of creativity. Pause & Paint will be a time to slow down and take a pause in your busy schedule. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with others while flexing their creativity muscles. In this session individuals will be asked to draw/paint "where am I today".  

Supplies Needed: Any that you have useful! Pens, paper, pencil, sticky notes, crayons, markers, and/or if you have them on hand, paint and a canvas.
