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

May 17, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm BST


Tuesday 17 May: Looking with Mindfulness

In this workshop we’ll use a Dutch landscape for a number of different approaches to mindful looking. The workshop starts with a short guided mindful meditation. This is followed by trying various ways of mindfully engaging with one painting: through colour, light and narrative. Led by Lucia van der Drift.  Includes an audio recording for walking outdoors in your own time.

Join us for Looking with Mindfulness as part of Creativity & Wellbeing Week.

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 diffrent 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.
