“Mindfulness” – to pay attention, on purpose, in a particular way. It can both enhance focus and promote relaxation. Art-making is inherently mindful! Using drawing, painting, and collage, students will review a new aspect of mindfulness practice each week. This course offers artists a unique opportunity to develop goals and increase motivation for their artistic efforts. Beginning artists will be able to explore a variety of art techniques and add to their portfolios; more experienced artists will discover new ways to activate their creativity. All materials are provided. A materials fee of $10 is payable to the instructor at the first class.
