Wallace Collection Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2022 A Mindful Look at Dutch Landscapes

May 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm BST

Thursday 19 May: Mindfulness and Writing
Be guided through a mindfulness meditation and contemplation of a painting from our collection of Dutch landscapes. We will use elements of the painting as writing prompts to gently explore our personal connection to the theme of the picture and its resonance with our own outer and inner landscapes. Please have something to write with at hand. Led by Lucia van der Drift.

This year’s theme of Get Creative, Get Outdoors will be explored during Creativity & Wellbeing Week 2022 in these morning workshops.

Join us for close looking and contemplation. Each session wil explore a different mindfulness practice, using a Dutch landscape from our collection as a starting point.

Meet each morning to spend a restorative hour with a painting from the Wallace Collection. Starting with a short mindfulness practice, you’ll then be guided to look closely and with curiosity, allowing the painting to open up a space for creativity and reflection. After the session, you’ll receive a link to an audio recording, with the invitation to listen as you take a mindful walk outdoors.
