A Taste of Art: Mindful Drawing

The Old Courthouse Thirsk
Wednesday 9th October

With all materials included and each workshop suitable for beginners, our Wednesday morning Taste Of... sessions give the perfect introduction to a range of artistic styles and techniques.

In recognition of World Mental Health Day on Thursday 10th October, this week's Taste of Art will be Mindful Drawing.

The word mindful originates from the practice of mindfulness, which is the skill of focusing on the present through drawing in on your experiences in the hear and now. It is often used as a meditative practice to relieve anxiety and other mental health conditions. Within this workshop, you will create your own "Mindful Drawing" by using ink pens to create intricate patterns and details within everyday forms and objects.

Suitable For: All abilities.

Materials: All materials and equiptment are provided.

'Taste of Art' workshops are creative sessions that are friendly, informal and good fun and aim to provide an introduction to a technique or art form. Lasting an hour and a half they are run by qualified tutors and artists and aim to give you an insight into a craft and inspire you to do more.

You don't have to be a creative person to take part as the sessions are aimed at all levels and the focus is on experimentation. Most of our sessions use materials and equipment that are accessible and low cost and we always try to provide ceramic activities that utilise our kiln.

'Taste Of Art' sessions will provide you with an opportunity to make new friends and meet up with other budding creatives.

'Taste of Art' sessions run during the school term and a detailed programme is released on this website.

Please bring an apron.
