While we’re well aware of the benefits of arts and crafts for children, you may be wondering if adults can derive something of value from indulging in the crafting experience. The answer to that question is a resounding YES according to Katrina Norris, Program Manager at Spectrum Health & Human Services who writes that, “Research has shown that crafting, regardless of the medium you use, can bolster mood, improve self-confidence, and reduce stress overall… crafting has also shown to improve mental agility, improves both gross and fine motor movements, and also decrease cognitive decline…Research studies have shown that those suffering from PTSD, Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Insomnia and any level of chronic pain have achieved a reduction in symptoms by incorporating crafts into their lives.” 

Secaucus residents at RVRHelix at Xchange and Next at Xchange who want to reap the aforementioned benefits can get their crafting journey started by attending the ARTS & CRAFTS FOR ADULTS program at the Secaucus Public Library Annex on April 10 @6pm. The event takes place in the Katherine Steffens Annex located at 1007 Riverside Station Boulevard. To register for the ARTS & CRAFTS FOR ADULTS evening, just click here and you can complete your registration.
