Art of Being is a program that joins mindfulness meditation with the creative process in a way that is accessible to anyone, regardless of skill or experience.
Art of Being | Intro Workshop
In this three-hour introductory workshop, we will begin by exploring the question What is mindfulness? Grounding ourselves in our body and breath, we can connect with a deeper calm and stillness that lies beneath all of our busyness and worry. We can open our senses to experience the unfolding world around us with greater clarity. This is the ground out of which our art-making will arise. Guided instruction will give you an experiential introduction to basic mindfulness practices, along with time for questions, feedback, and suggestions for continuing to develop your own personal practice at home.
Our art practice in this session, Finding your Line, will center on connecting with your own authentic mark-making that arises out of the stillness and space of simply being. You will have an opportunity to experiment and explore a range of materials in a safe and supportive environment, to see where your line leads you. As we learn to trust the process and let go of self-criticism, we find that the line we draw reveals a fresh confidence.
This workshop will be conducted in English. All materials will be provided, but if you have your own personal art materials or meditation cushion you would like to use, please feel free to bring them along!
Space is limited to 10 participants.
