Saturday 9.30am-11.30am Tell Me Your Story. Self expression through a visual narrative or art journal, using a variety of media. Opportunities and exercises are provided each week to help think “outside the box”, and expand creativity with personal relevance. It is relaxing, reducing stress and anxiety.
Wednesday 9.30am-11.30am Mindfulness Art. This group uses art as a point of focus for Mindfulness. It can be the unfolding intuitive process, seeing the subject or theme with increased awareness, and connecting more intimately with those things; or painting a place or object that evokes feelings of mindfulness; or focusing on a mantra or intention while painting images that represent it; or increased awareness of experiences and transitions through personal symbols and visual language (this form of mindfulness art is very effective to explore, acknowledge, honor and/or “let go”, often healing in ways that words alone cannot).
No art experience necessary, all levels welcome. Fig Tree Pocket, just off western freeway, bike track and buses; easy access and parking.
$30 for each 2 hour group includes a wide variety of basic materials; $25/group prepayment of 4 groups.
