The news can leave us a bit down these days and the Art League wants you to lift our spirits! Don’t we all need a good laugh? Recent studies show that indulging your sense of humor can help you live a longer, healthier life. Laughing not only eases stress, it promotes social bonding, and lowers blood pressure. Your camera lens may capture an image that promotes a smile, giggle or, perhaps, a belly laugh. Silly animals, goofy kids, a wild event, a good laugh will recharge your batteries!
