Mindful Drawing Workshop Suffolk

Saturday 20th February 2016,
Botesdale, Diss, Norfolk, £50.00 including materials and refreshments, everyone welcome, art experience not necessary!

How can we learn to really enjoy playing with art materials without self judgement or getting caught up with wanting to create a masterpiece?

Mindfulness involves learning to be in the here and now, in the present moment. It can really help us to enjoy and appreciate our experience as it unfolds in the moment.

In drawing and painting mindfulness can help us learn to be less self judgemental, more accepting of ourselves and what we are doing, and more aware of creative possibilities with the materials we are using.

In this Art and Mindfulness Day Workshops we will begin to learn how to combine simple mindfulness practices with drawing.

Everyone is welcome, whether or not they have any prior art experience. The aim is not to produce a 'good' work of art, but to explore the process of combining creative and mindfulness activities.

Zangmo Alexander, the tutor, is an experienced, qualified art teacher, life coach and artist. A Buddhist nun for seven years, she has been on the 8 week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Course with the Centre for Mindfulness Research at Bangor University as well as studying and practising meditation for many years. During her two year Masters Degree in Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and Design, she researched ways of integrating her own creative and mindfulness practices.
