Art and mindfulness have a natural kinship, and this interactive workshop enhances both. Through a variety of meditations, simple movement, journaling and drawing exercises, discover how to tap into your natural creativity. Rather than a technique-based drawing class, guided practices are vehicles for mindfully connecting to your direct experience, allowing for surprising outcomes. Participants will have opportunities to work with contemplative themes such as impermanence, empathy, focus and non-focus, and working with the inner critic.
Examples of specific activities may include:
- Mindful seeing and drawing
- Creating from all the senses and the physical feedback loop
- Two-handed doodling
- Disappearing painting
- Organic forms as growth models
- Color resonance
- Universal and personal symbols
Adult artists and non-artists, experienced meditation practitioners and novices alike are sure to find enhanced access to their own authentic voice.
Cost of workshop includes all materials except required journal.
No prior meditation or art experience necessary
