Mindfulness Nature Drawing Workshop

Council

Mindfulness Nature Drawing Workshop

Starting on the 29th January

In this two week series, you will create artworks inspired by the natural world around us. This course focuses on finding the beauty in the natural world and the process of mindfully capturing it.  The course will focus less on the fundamental drawing, but will aim to use the “step by step” drawing method as a form of relaxation and an activity to unwind. Over the two week course you will create your artwork and take part in simple mindfulness activities that can be used to get into a “state of flow” while creating your work.

In these sessions we will aim to create artwork without the pressures of perfection but instead enjoy the process. Drawing nature – especially getting out in person benefits our mental health, allowing time for quiet contemplation, meditation and mindfulness and an appreciation of your surroundings. All that is required for this course is a pencil and paper and the zoom link provided.
