Have you ever experienced being so immersed in creative activity that you’ve lost track of time? This happens because creative activities such as art making, crafting, or gardening can ease us into a meditative state by enhancing our capacity for focus, concentration, inner peace, and calm.
This workshop uses process-focused creativity to explore color as a wordless language that can evoke memories and emotions, together with simple mark-making as a mindfulness tool. Using ink and simple watercolor techniques, we’ll wander into a state of Creative Mindfulness. No special skills or ‘art’ experience is needed.
About the Facilitator: A metastatic cancer survivor since 2011, Karen Arsenault has found the creative process invaluable in navigating the fear and uncertainty of the cancer journey. Through the many expressive arts workshops she has participated in, Karen developed a passion for watercolors and now gives back by developing and facilitating her own Creative Mindfulness workshops and donating her art in several forms to The Healing Garden.
Registration is required and space is limited. Open to Healing Garden clients. This program will meet on-site at the Healing Garden.
This program is supported in part by generous funding from the Ayer, Carlisle, Concord, Groton, Harvard, Lunenburg, and Sudbury Cultural Councils, local agencies that are supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
