Can making art reveal things about yourself that you didn’t already know?  Can art be healing?  Explore these questions and others as you participate in this workshop bridging aspects of mindfulness meditation and art making. In this experiential workshop, you will participate in a short guided meditation designed to help become more aware of your mind and body. Next, you will be invited to engage in an art making activity that aims to bring the meditation into a whole new light. No prior experience in art or meditation is necessary.  Art materials will be provided.
