    Mindfulness is the practice of bringing your attention to the present moment – your thoughts, feelings, sensations, and surroundings.

    In this 2.5 hour workshop, take your creative mindfulness activities beyond colouring in and find inner focus while learning drawing and painting techniques.

    Explore line, tone, colour and texture and a variety of mediums such as watercolour, ink, charcoal, graphite and pastel. Learn how to use the creative process to express emotion and promote positive thoughts and feelings.

    You’ll create imagined landscapes, pattern mandalas, colour field experiments and more as you discover the potential of drawing.

    We’ll also discuss positivity, the power of art to lift mood and the potential of drawing to bring our minds to a place of peace and serenity.
