“When Is a Crayola Crayon Not Just for Coloring?”

Do you know that Harvard Medical School found a way to instantly lower our blood pressure by 10 points?  When stressed, hold an older Crayola crayon under your nose and breathe deeply. Transporting yourself to your childhood (and being creative) is good for you. Dawne Brown White, Executive Director of Compas, a nonprofit arts organization in St. Paul, shares her insights into the benefits of the arts and arts education. We’ll hear the latest from Minnesota Citizens for the Arts, the NEA and Americans for the Arts, including the economic advantages of vibrant arts communities.
