Art Mind Create workshops use art to explore mindfulness and develop creativity. They reference famous art, philosophy, pop culture and other interesting stuff along the way. The practical workshops are good fun, very accessible and suitable for both adults and teenagers.
Any piece of art is a statement about some kind of significant experience. Whatever we may think about it, we can find a connection to most art, as long as we are prepared to pay attention and observe. Similar to art, mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to something significant. Like in art, there is always something significant to observe in everyday life, if we choose to.
Mindfulness is a bit like being in an art gallery, with time and space to observe what we see, giving freedom to choose what we pay attention to, and more control over our experiences.
Creativity is an experience that, like life, can be tricky and difficult, even frustrating, but when it is done well, it is both enjoyable and fulfilling. Creativity can be a worthwhile experience when we give it a chance. Art Mind Create explore and practice these skills so we may develop a more positive resilience to the challenges of everyday life, and consider strategies for improved experience.
