Timeline & Details:
1. Guided Meditation led by Soulful Serenity: Sometimes we feel blocked or stuck or restless before an art session. The benefit to this workshop is that we start with a guided meditation session which will help your kids feel grounded and relaxed. Breathing techniques and mantras are used to guide the kids during this meditation practice.
2. Positive Affirmations led by Soulful Serenity: Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes. They are especially useful for artists as they motivate you to create more meaningful artwork, improve your self-esteem, and uplift you when you are suffering from an artistic block. Some examples of affirmations we will use are "I am filled with endless creativity," "I am worthy of being an artist," and "My art inspires others."
3. Gallery Walk led by Amy Diener: This workshop is hosted at Amy Diener's art space, so the kids will experience a real artist's studio, have a guided gallery walk and exploration, and have an opportunity to ask any questions!
4. Mandala Dot Painting led by Amy Diener: Kids will learn how to create mandalas using dot patterns with brushes. Mandalas, meaning "circles" in Sanskrit, are symbols that are used for meditation, healing, and art therapy. Mandalas have been shown to boost the immune system and ease depression and anxiety. Incorporating dots within their mandalas heightens these therapeutic benefits. Mandala dot painting helps cultivate focus and patience, dot by dot, inside to outside, while having fun! They will complete 1 small 10x10cm mandala dot painting on canvas.
5. Mandala Meditation led by Soulful Serenity: Lastly, the kids are guided on a mandala meditation. They will concentrate on their mandala dot painting fully and allow its shapes, patterns and colors to work on their unconscious mind. If distracting thoughts arise, we encourage them to let them drift away and gently bring their focus back to the mandala.
Here are some steps we incorporate for mandala meditation:
Step 1: Sit comfortably in front of your mandala.
Step 2: Breathe slowly and deeply, gazing upon your mandala so that the image gradually goes out of focus.
Step 3: For about 5 minutes, meditate on the center of your mandala shape, allowing its geometry to bring your mind to a state of balance.
6. Clean-up, pack-up, and go home feeling proud, empowered, and inspired.
