Wednesday

7/20/22 - 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Kuehn, Noriko

This 2000-year-old art form is practiced by Zen Masters who adhere to the practice of meditation in preparation for painting. Noriko will start the class with a Zen meditation in preparation for Zen Brush techniques. Zen art differs from other art disciplines as it is focused on the realization of "no-mind." Furthermore, it is the expression of Zen through a brush, whether the result is a single stroke, a Zen circle, or an ink painting. Enso is a Japanese word meaning “circle” and a concept strongly associated with Zen. Enso is one of the most common subjects of Japanese calligraphy even though it is a symbol and not a character. In Zen Buddhist painting, Enso symbolizes a moment when the mind is free to simply let the body and spirit create.
There is a $15 materials fee paid directly to the instructor.
Ages 17 and up.

Graham LMHC ATR, Molly

Art journaling is a method of combining images, colors, shapes, words, and a variety of materials to express anything you want- whether this be your day-to-day thoughts and feelings, an event from the past, or your hopes and dreams for the future. In this class, you will create a visual diary. You will be given prompts to follow and creative processes to try, if you’d like, but ultimately this will be your journal and your time to explore the art materials. Human beings are intrinsically creative, and tapping into this creativity cultivates an outlet for self-care and mindfulness. You will learn how to take the coping skills learned through art journaling and use these in your daily life. Please note that the creative process is healing in nature and art journaling may bring up strong emotions, however this class is not therapy. All materials are provided. Ages 17 and up.
