May 18th – FLOW ARTS - The Art of Object Manipulation
We're meeting outside in town square (next to USB) this week and getting introduced to Flow Toys. Artists please come and inspire us. Show us your flow!
***** 
What is flow and what do you mean when you use the term "the flow arts"?
Flow is the mental state of operation in which the person is fully immersed in what he or she is doing by a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity. Colloquial terms for this or similar mental states include: to be on the ball, in the zone, or in the groove.

Flow Arts blends meditation, play, exercise and dance into a fun and healthful activity that moves the body, stills the mind and uplifts the spirit. It is movement with an external focus aimed at putting you “in the zone” or in the Flow. The techniques are simple, but the adaptations are infinite, allowing for wild variations in personal style and expression, as well as the opportunity to make & share novel discoveries. The movement can be aerobic, calming, energizing, challenging, showy or anything else. Flow Arts improves dexterity, focus, coordination, body awareness, spatial skills and promotes brain plasticity.

Flow Arts is like Yoga, Tai Chi, Dance and Juggling all rolled into Fun!

COFFEE & CONVOS is a new way to connect at the LCFA each Friday at noon. The aim is to Learn, Share, Connect. It's laid back and casual. There's a new topic each week but feel free to take an adventurous detour.

+ Gather in the gallery space where the art will inspire you.
+ Relax in the comfy chairs with a cup of Coffee Snob's brew.
+ Meet interesting and like minded people.
+ Chat about topics relating to the arts, creativity, community and collaboration.
