Art as Meditation Weekend Workshop

July 20 @ 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Art as Meditation Weekend Workshop

Center yourself and let your creativity flow. Join us to practice body-mind connection through artmaking. We welcome first-time meditators, first-time art makers, as well as old-timers. We will start with some meditative exercises to help us feel in the moment and become more aware of our physical selves and internal landscape. We will then create art slowly, being mindful of what we are doing and how we feel as we release our creative energy.

The inherent calling that we all have to be present is growing amidst the sometimes overwhelming political and environmental chaos that has become commonplace in our daily lives. If you are interested in experiencing art as a meditation and gathering in community to look at and talk about the creative process, this class is for you.

The class will include inspirational prompts such as mark making, looking at masterworks of art, and incorporating existing works of art into our own. We will support you as you follow established artistic paths, as well as encouraging you to find new ones. As we begin to let go of rigid ideas and shift away from being goal oriented in our approach, we hope to suspend self-consciousness and expectations so that the creative process of making can arise naturally.

Multi-media art materials are provided by River Gallery School, but you’re welcome to bring in materials of your own that speak to you.
