Mindful Drawing is an exploration of drawing as meditation. We will experiment with different exercises involving the senses and mark-making. There will also be short periods of guided meditation. No prior meditation or drawing experience is needed.
In this weekend workshop we will explore the drawing experience paying particular attention to the body and how we perceive ourselves and others through the senses, as well as noticing how we relate to the experience. We will not be learning how to draw but rather how to pay attention and let go of preconceived ideas.
We will focus on the process of mark-making without worrying about outcome or feeling pressured to create something. Instead, we draw our experience of what we see and feel and reflect on what we notice.
