Simon Jr. introduces the methods of mindful drawing described in his recent publication, Drawing Your Own Path: 33 Practices at the Crossroads of Art and Meditation. He will teach ways in which participants can observe their own thoughts while drawing, putting them in touch with the joy of creating, learning by exploring, and noticing how they judge the results. Simon will also lead a group discussion on how everyone can find the sources of their creativity and what mindful drawings reveal about us. The workshop finishes with the practice of a simple exercise in the galleries of the Museum. Drawing materials will be supplied. All levels of experience with drawing and meditation are welcome.
