Everyone can draw, everyone can be creative, everyone can practice mindfulness. In this workshop we will be expanding our creative awareness and using simple acts of art making as a way of connecting more profoundly with nature and our lives. You will be introduced to the practice of mindfulness and meditation and you will learn how to apply it to both every day activities as well as creating. We will be finding ways to quiet our minds, our inner critic, let go of perfectionism and what is holding us back and just enjoy the flow of creating. Exploring different mediums such as drawing, stitch, (mini) installations in nature, and projects that help remind us what brings us joy and how to be kind to ourselves.
