CPD 020-S18-2 | Contempletive Art

Sat, 7/21/18, 9AM-4PM, Room 209

Maximum Enrollment: 15 LBS

Course Description

As artists, we constantly explore perception and use various mental states to create. We rarely examine these states as a conscious choice. Many cultures celebrate the contemplative artist who creates from a mind of deep inner peace. This is the wellspring of all sacred and healing arts. Join Khenmo Drolma for an exploration of working within meditative states. You will be given basic meditation and mindfulness instructions and simple exercises to learn how to locate and work from oceanic stillness. This course is for all levels of experience, especially those tired of the myth of the tortured artist! Materials: brush or pen and ink and news print

TUITION: $85 + FEES: $0
CEUs: n/a
