Mindful Art Parties
Dear Wonderful, Creative You:
Since we went into quarantine, each week I’ve been holding a live, free Mindful Art Party. It’s a time you dedicate to yourself, to connect and create with artists from all over the world. Despite social distancing, we can still create together through the magic of the internet. It’s very special to host these parties and know that we are united in our art.
I have heard from many students that these art parties help get them through the week. These workshops are rich experiences for me too. It’s powerful to connect with you through art right now, when we all need connection so badly. It’s a privilege to be able to facilitate these mindful art workshops for you.
I begin each session with a creative warmup, usually a visualization. This helps us to get centered on playful art making. Throughout the workshop, I guide you to focus on process by noticing through the senses, instead of focusing on critical self-talk. We explore simple themes in multiple ways that often lead to BIG ideas for your art. Most importantly, we can let go of everything else for an hour, and have fun making art. We paint, draw, and tune into the beauty of the moment through our senses.
I know not everyone can access the parties live, or on Facebook, so I make the REPLAYS available on my site for free for 48 hours.
Some folks have asked how to support me in offering these Mindful Art Parties, I’m accepting donations of any size, if you wish, through Paypal.

I can’t wait to create with you!
