Mindful Art for Adult's

Mindful art connects the process of creating art with mindfulness practice. In this workshop, participants will draw and apply color while being guided through a number of exercises to heighten their awareness of the present moment. The participants will use line and shape for pattern making, along with markers and colored pencils. By focusing on the process with conscious awareness, students will be able to see their work with fresh eyes. In the practice of mindful art, process bears an equal, if not greater, weight to the actual product. No prior art or mindfulness experience is necessary.  Materials will be provided, though students may bring their own materials. 

Course Date: TBA

Instructor: Kate Murphy

Location: TBA
