Studies in Art Therapy and psychology have demonstrated that the practice of drawing can help reduce stress, improve focus, promote a timeless “flow” state where one’s mind is relieved of every-day concerns, strengthen one’s power of observation, build mental connections, and provide an overall sense of well-being and accomplishment… Not to mention developing an ability that helps you express yourself, have fun, and capture inner reflections and/or moments from the world around you.
This is a monthly gathering to appreciate, practice, and explore approaches/techniques in meditative drawing such as Zentangling, drawing from observation, “slow” drawing, Neurographic arts, and more. Each session, we will practice our drawing skills together in a supportive and relaxed environment. Beginners are welcome!
Led by a creative arts professional, at each session, we will explore a new design, drawing technique or meditative drawing style. Each assignment will be guaranteed to help you get in the “flow”, and will help you build new persepctives and skills. If you like, you can also use the time to work on a meditative drawing project of your own, share with the group, trade tips and tricks, and get technical guidance and support from one another and the group leader.
You’re welcome to bring your own drawing supplies and reference material to practice with; We will have extra tools and materials on hand as needed.
Drawing supplies may also be purchased in advance from Beaux Arts art supply store in Florence, located just off Hwy. 101 in the Coastal Fitness shopping plaza.
