Not quite meditation as you know it and not art making as most of us have done it.

In this course, participants make art with basic materials (provided), with a focus on the process of creating art rather than on the end product.  Participants should bring a notebook and something to write with as there is brief writing before and after art making.  Neither the art nor the writing are critiqued or commented on and no art experience is needed.

Participants will discover the process for using art as a way of observing their experiences or for the purpose of meditation, centering or just having fun with the materials. Facilitators will provide simple art materials and a framework for engaging on the process.

Art as Meditation is based on the work of the Open Studio Project.

Gorton Community Center will take and may use photos and videos from this event for its promotional purposes. Your attendance indicates your consent to the above.
