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

May 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm BST

Wednesday 18 May: Mindfulness and Drawing
Bring together mindful looking and drawing, for an experience of deep engagement with one painting. Taking a Dutch landscape as our focus, we’ll make drawings as a way of observing closely, feeling more connected and coming into the present moment sensations of looking. No previous experience of drawing necessary. Please have paper and two pencils to draw with. Led by Karly Allen.

Includes an audio recording for walking outdoors in your own time.

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.
