Brushstrokes is now hosting afternoons of Art and Mindfulness. This new series of workshops explore the mindful practice, the focus is on the body and the breath. Practices range from watercolor to drawing, sketching and painting, ceramics and play. Painting 3:00-5:00 Every Second Sunday In mindful drawing, the focus is on the hand and the eye and the thing we are drawing. This focus allows the mind to calm. Mindful drawing is an active way of looking, of seeing, a kind of active meditation. Because it takes time to make a drawing, it requires deeper, sustained attention, we are actively noticing things. And all that time we’re with something, building a relationship with it. By connecting with what we are drawing, it connects with us too and has an effect on us: compassion for the world, perspective on our lives, gratitude for all the gifts around us. And after focussing on this one specific specimen, we look around us in astonishment at the kaleidoscope of beauty as the world bursts into full color because our eyes and our souls have been opened. Guided by Jessica Abbott Williams, Katie Swan, and guest instructors. $25/person “Attention is the doorway to gratitude.” Robin Wall Kimmerer (botanist)
