Breathe. Play. Create. Contemplate.

Set your Wild Woman or Inner Child free and allow yourself to play with paint, scissors, pens and glue.

In this course you will:

  • Learn Centering Breath and HeartMath breathing methods.
  • Play with watercolor paint application.
  • Learn mixed media collage methods.
  • Engage in mindful breathing, allowing, nonjudgement and acceptance while art making.
  • Engage in contemplative practice after completing your art.

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.
