Meditative Drawing: Cultivating a Creative Practice with Intention
Becca Borrelli has had first-hand experience with creative burnout, judgment and self- criticism. As a public school art teacher turned illustrator, she is passionate about sharing the practices that helped her meaningfully re-cultivate a sustainable artistic practice, as well as create safe space for beginners and seasoned makers to explore their art practice deeply and mindfully.
Becca will guide students through a drawing session that applies Ten Principles of mindfulness towards personal creative practice. Used effectively in drawing, mindfulness can be the antidote to the creative critic in your head. In this session we will address ways to notice creative criticism as it arises, respond gently rather than react, and ultimately make art from a renewed space of clarity and intention.  This class is perfect for anyone interested in combining mindfulness with drawing. All levels welcome.
