Flow in Art:
Discovering Optimal Experience in
Pessimal Times
Presented by
Sharon Zook

Sharon Zook earned her Master's Degree in Applied Clinical Psychology from Penn State University.  She is the President of the Lebanon Valley Council for the Arts and works in design and management for Snitz Creek Cabinet Shop.  She is President of the South Sixth St. Playground Association and won the Jefferson Award in 2010.

The presentation will follow a journey through thyroid cancer diagnosis, surgery and treatment examining how art served to restore hope and control through those pessimal times. The theory of "Flow" by Dr. Cszikszentmihali sheds light on the power of art as one activity capable of facilitating optimal experience by transporting one to a new and more complex self even during otherwise unpleasant life experiences.  Happiness and enjoyment may be within one's control even though disease, trials or other changes restrict how one previously achieved enjoyment.
