Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. join us in Green Hall, Room 103 for Clay and Flow Workshop with Dr. Julie Parker. This workshop will include a brief lesson about the new subfield “Positive Psychology” founded by Martin Seligman of the University of Pennsylvania. This area of psychology provides research-based applications to strengthen subjective well-being and happiness. “Engagement,” a component of Seligman’s PERMA model of subjective well-being will be discussed, as well as the mental state “Flow,” which is a high level of engagement. Participants will be given a short lesson on handbuilding with clay, and an opportunity to learn how to reach states of Flow using the medium.

She earned her PhD in Psychology with a specialization in Consciousness and Spirituality from Saybrook University, San Francisco; Masters in Transpersonal Psychology from John F. Kennedy University, Pleasant Hill, California, and Bachelor of Fine Arts from Meredith College, Raleigh. She specializes in graphite drawing and oil painting. Her style is mostly representational.
