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.
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.
