The purpose of this workshop is to learn to become more mindful in our daily life through the relaxing process of making drawings in fun, 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 to attention.  You will make drawings in a relaxed, conscious, and aware state that is optimum for the drawing experience–a state similar to meditation–a state of restful alertness. 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
  • New drawing techniques
  • A sense of peace
  • Focused attention-mindfulness
  • Finding your creative voice
  • Seeing with the heart and hand
  • 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.
