VISUAL ART can be a meditative practice.

Participants will explore various art materials/media and various methods

that inspire image making and methods of stimulating the ‘blank paper/page/canvas’ syndrome.

The focus is on the process rather than the end results.

The goal is not to create ‘Big A Art’. (Works that you hope to frame).

What you will achieve is a rich resource of images, greater experience in handling art media,

and greater awareness of the elements and principles of composition.
