LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 11, 2014) — More pinning, less doing. The Student Activities Board presents the first Pinterest Party of the semester. SAB provides the supplies, and students provide the creativity in a relaxing and fun arts event from 7-9 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, Feb. 11, in the Rasdall Gallery.

 

Pinterest parties are based on popular “pinned” ideas on Pinterest. Do it yourself projects, also known as DIY, and crafting have become popular over the past few years due to the social media site’s popularity. Pinterest parties give students an opportunity and make crafts to decorate their residence halls or apartments while relieving stress.

 

“We are very excited to offer Pinterest parties because they were such a hit with students last semester,” said Connor Giesselman, SAB director of campus life. “The first Pinterest party will focus on fun Valentine’s Day crafts that students can use all year round.”

 

Pinterest parties will also be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, in Commons 308B, located next to The Study, and at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 16, in the Rasdall Gallery.

 

SAB brings more than 100 entertaining educational and enriching programs that are reflective of contemporary issues and trends to the University of Kentucky annually. These programs are designed to enhance the college experience for students, faculty, staff and the greater Lexington community.
