  • Engage in mindful breathing, allowing, nonjudgement and acceptance while art making.

How Does This Work?

Each month you will receive access to the months activities and resources. It's that simple. You can stick with it as long as you want and cancel at any time. The monthly sessions are pre-recorded and there is not a live component, however periodic Zoom calls will be offered throughout the year to gather and share. You can also pay for an entire year, 12 sessions, delivered 1 a month, and have lifetime access to your materials, for a reduced fee, saving you almost 50%.

It's just that simple.

Contemplative art uses arts practices to help induce a contemplative state of consciousness and in that way can be thought of as a contemplative practice. So what is contemplative practice and how does it differ from mindfulness based art processes or meditative and intuitive art processes.

Contemplative Art, a form of Process Art provides access to deeper aspects of ourselves, including the feelings and symbols that reside in our inner landscapes. In this workshop we will be working from a mindfulness practice and then engage in a mindfulness based, contemplative abstract watercolor painting exercise. We will then engage in the contemplative practice of Visio Divina and learn to "hear" from our art.
