Connect & Create: Drawing as Meditation

May 14, 2024 5:30PM to 7:00PM
LUAG Main & Lower Galleries

This workshop invites participants to de-stress by creating experimental drawings inspired by the season, observation, and a curiosity about the world all around us. The session will begin with some gentle seated movement, followed by a short guided meditation. With a cultivated sense of heightened awareness, we will move through several drawing exercises based on the evening's theme.

The resulting drawings will be experimental, fluid, foundational, gestural, and incredibly fun. Here, the emphasis is on mark-making, gesture, and connecting the practice of drawing with the practice of meditation. No prior drawing or meditation experience is required, as the practice is really based on the individual's response to the experience in the moment.

Open to the public. Registration is limited. Please register in advance.
