6 WEEK ONLINE MINDFUL DRAWING COURSE
Tuesday 22nd September
6pm - 6.45pm UK time
6 X 45 minute online mindful drawing sessions - perfect for people who are looking for a creative wellbeing practice they can develop in the comfort of their own home.
In these sessions, participants will be introduced to the power and benefit of mindful drawing. Mindfulness is all about observation, and so is drawing. Both require you to slow down and pay close attention to what’s in front of you. Drawing is a great way to practice mindfulness because it allows you to be focused in the present moment.
The sessions will not only calm the mind but inspire those who think they can't draw!
Mindful drawing helps to release the judgement and harsh criticism that keeps people feeling stuck.

What materials will participants need?

Do the participants have to be good at drawing to join or receive the benefits?

What are the benefits of mindful drawing?
Drawing and mindfulness both involve giving full attention to the present moment. Observational drawing is a direct and simple route to the present moment. When participants are guided through simple drawing activities, helping them to give their full attention to the process of observational drawing, stress levels decrease as their mind becomes focused on the present moment and thoughts about the past and future start to fade. Scientifically, drawing helps people to access the right side of their brain which is the creative side, non-verbal side so when this side of the brain is activated participants experience feelings of peace, happiness and wellbeing.
