1. Introduction to Drawing: Another Way to express yourself
Age is no barrier for learning to draw. Anyone can learn, if taught some very basic skills. Students will explore interesting subjects and develop an understanding of composition, form, light and shadow. Drawing skills will enhance your painting or photography, or if you have never made any art before, drawing will bring appreciation for the environment, stress reduction, and a calming meditative experience.
2. Mind Your Art: Art as meditation
Creating art is a way to access a meditative state of mind and the profound healing it brings because it demands that we are both present in the moment and that we are an observer. Explore a variety of art techniques that can help you practice mindfulness.
