Meditative Drawing: Past, Present, Future

This video workshop will lead you through an exploration of the past, present and future through guided mark-making, intention setting, and creation of symbols. The culmination of the video workshop will be the creation of a finished piece, incorporating the practices learned.

Have you ever had an interest in tapping into the past, present and future to assist you in your artistic process? Would you like to learn meditative drawing techniques to guide your artistic practice?

This video workshop will lead you through an exploration of the past, present and future through guided mark-making, intention setting, and creation of symbols. The culmination of the video workshop will be the creation of a finished piece, incorporating the practices learned.

Mark-making describes the different lines, dots, marks, textures, and patterns that can be created in an artwork. The video workshop’s focus on meditative mark-making will teach you a variety of mark-making styles that you will incorporate by way of symbols and patterns.

In this video workshop, you will participate in a mindfulness practice to help you connect and allow your mind to rest. This will help you to accept your emotional and physical sensations and focus on the present.

While working at your own pace, you will practice guided mark-making, meditative intention setting, and symbol creation activities. The remainder of the video workshop will teach you to create a finished artwork, incorporating symbols and patterns that resonate most with your relationship to the past, present, and future.

Working independently, you will strengthen skills in confidence and creative intuition, while developing your own method of mark-making and symbol and pattern creation to compose the visual space.
