Mindful Art-Making in Challenging Times 2 (ONLINE) IN 750EH_ON
with Dona Duncan
Cultivating mindfulness, or wakefulness, allows you to be fully present and aware of your actions, without feeling distracted and overwhelmed by other thoughts or outside influences. Art-making is a natural way of practicing mindfulness, and is especially important in these challenging times. Mindful art-making has been shown not only to reduce stress and improve communication skills, but also to benefit those suffering from memory loss, depression, or PTSD. Discover how creativity can enrich your daily life. Under the guidance of Dona Duncan, artist and registered Art Therapist, practice light mediation and relaxation techniques to cultivate mindfulness, and express your thoughts and feelings through drawing and painting projects in a non-judgmental atmosphere. Projects will be assigned in each class and discussed the following week. No artistic experience necessary.
