Simple Mindful Drawing Workshop with Shani Nottingham

Sat February 16 at 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Our lives are busy and we are busy doing lots of things. Our minds are often working very hard, using a lot of brainpower and energy on attempting to sieve through a constant jumble of incoming sensory data, and trying to make sense of it all.

Yet even when we are doing nothing, we often feel the guilt that we SHOULD be doing something. But what something? Sometimes we just do not know what… we have no more energy to think about what we could possibly do.

Sometimes it is our inner critic that tells us that we shouldn’t bother trying something new, as we probably won’t be any good at it anyway. And is that when we simply reach for our phone as a distraction?

So what steps can we take to pause and be mindful, while improving our well-being and sense of self.

Here’s an idea…let’s get creative.

This unique workshop, SIMPLE MINDFUL DRAWING, will allow you the time to find ways to focus, observe and be present. You will also practise and be shown ideas and excercises to help you feel calmer, in tune and balanced.

You may also find that creative part of you, no longer inhibited by self criticism and expectation.

With loads of take away information included, and drawing packs available for purchase, participants will be able to continue simple mindful drawing practices, sketching and creative exploration long after this class finishes.

Ticket includes:

A comprehensive tutorial on drawing mindfully

The chance to watch an artist at work

A scrumptious afternoon tea

All drawing materials

There is also a discount voucher for additional art products purchased on the day.
