The Design Creativity as the way of dealing with students’ stress in the context of the global pandemic challenge
In this publication we concentrate our attention on finding the ways for dealing with students’ stress during the COVID-2019 pandemic period and implementing them into the constant practice. In the design practice we can consider stress not only as negative, but also positive experience. We present our own experience that unites educational technologies in the design practice, the design-methods and some moments of the art therapy. We examine students’ diploma projects simultaneously as the design-product and the design-process that have anti-stress effect and are the method of harmonization of the students’ internal world in terms of the changeable medium. We consider different ways of art visualization as the mechanism of self-actualization, decrease of anxiety and dealing with depressive conditions. The work outlines the strategy of using design creativity as the way of overcoming and preventing the effects of stress factors during studying in the context of global pandemic challenges.
