The purpose of this workshop is to learn the art of mindfulness in our daily life through the relaxed process of drawing in imaginative and creative ways. You will not only
learn to draw well, but also learn to practice habits that will help you control your mental focus and attention.
You will make drawings in a state of restful alertness- similar to meditation- that is optimum for the drawing experience. Mindful drawing and meditation are mutually beneficial for physical, mental, spiritual and creative growth. You will learn to relax, have fun, and be present as you draw without an agenda for success and the fear of failure. You will find that drawing can become pure enjoyment. Some of the many benefits of this workshop are:
- Improved drawing skill
- A sense of peace
- Focused purposeful attention-mindfulness
- Finding your creative voice
- Fully experiencing with your senses
- Seeing with the heart, hand, and eyes
- Stillness of being
Through a variety of fascinating methods and subjects you will experience how easy and
enjoyable drawing can be in this new and innovative workshop.
