What is a Meditative Art Session?
Meditative Art Sessions were created out of my own use of art to move through grief. I lost my best friend earlier this year to suicide and turned to art as an escape, my own little universe I could stay in for as long as I needed (or I had filled the page) and I could feel all of my feelings or I could push them away with every pen stroke. The sessions are for you to process emotions while creating art.
What does a class look like? Do I need experience drawing?
The class will be 60 minutes and you do NOT need any drawing experience. What makes this different from a class is that I am not teaching you a drawing skill like drawing florals or drawing landscapes (yes you will inherently be learning how to draw) but I am providing you a space to focus on your mental well being and helping guide you in how to use drawing to process emotions.
What supplies do I need?
All you need in order to be a part of this is something to draw with and something to draw on, I work in ink primarily, but you can use any drawing implement and any type of paper. The pieces were are going to create aren’t meant to be masterpieces, or even things you want to share with anyone else so the products used aren’t as important as your mindset coming in.
Pairing a critical eye and scientific knowledge with artistic whimsy to create pieces that inspire, educate, and make people relax and smile. Drawn to Ecology supports and protect our planet while providing you with hand-drawn nature-based illustrations on sustainable products, manufactured here in New England. that support small local businesses like me!
I have been utilizing Meditative Art Sessions over the last few months and have put some pieces into a collection, Lost in the Woods Collection. I have a blog post about the collection, how I utilized meditative art sessions to create these pieces, but most importantly why art is so important for mental well-being.
