Cost: 20 Operas (or $20 for non-LETS members)
This 3 hour Contemplative Art workshop introduces a meditative approach to art making.
The emphasis will be on using art methods as a form of contemplative practice. Focusing on our senses and practices such as mark making and working with color, form and composition we will develop our internal focus to help us express our inner experience. This may be useful to develop self-awareness, as a relaxation method, to support our creative practice, or address blocks in our creative work.
The form of Contemplative Art we’ll practice focuses on the process of the mindful art-making as opposed to what we might produce. Though you may create images that act as inspiration for other creative work, that you can meditate with, or use in processes of self-reflection. The workshop is suitable for all levels of meditation and art experience.
