Creative training

Through his company The Abstract Athlete, Painting + Printmaking professor Ron Johnson teaches athletes, veterans and others about the therapeutic benefits of creative practices. He further extends these concepts to our students in his Art and Athletics course, where, artists and athletes learn to approach creativity and artistic practices with the same structure and rigor as athletic training.

Johnson and his business partner Chris Clemmer have made a few of these creative training exercises available for anyone looking for ways to manage stress and anxiety, and maintain focus and concentration.
