Do I need to be a professional artist to take this class?

Absolutely not! This is fundamentally a class about mindfulness and we will make the connections to all forms of creativity.

Do I need to be a visual artist to take this class?

You may notice that there is some mindful drawing for 10 minutes in each session. This will be a guided experience to apply the theory of applying mindfulness to actual creative practice. You could choose to draw, paint, make music, dance, or any other creative application you feel called to for that practice.

Do I need to be an experienced meditator to take this class?

Not at all!
This course is structured as an introduction to mindfulness and was designed with beginners in mind. If you have some experience with mindfulness, this course can deepen your practice and make the bridge with your creativity.
