Maggie O'Keefe returns with her popular Mindful Drawing monthly workshops. She will guide you in exploring some simple drawing practices designed to help us let go of the inner critic. You don’t need to know anything about mindfulness or anything about drawing.
“Mindfulness means the awareness that arises from paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” Jon Kabat-Zinn 1990
Surely drawing is a perfect way to stay present in the moment...or is it? Not if the inner critic has anything to do with it. It tells us “I can’t draw”. It judges our drawing to be “not good enough”. It tells us not to bother.
But the inner critic is just another form of thinking, and as Ruby Wax tells us “Thoughts aren’t fact, so don’t take them seriously”.
Times/Dates: Saturday 15th June and 13th July 10am to 1pm
Cost: £30 per workshop
