Reflections on Light and Shadow:
Art & Nature Meditation Workshop
Sunday, February 23
12:30 – 3:30 pm
About the workshop
Join a unique stress-relieving workshop inspired by the Japanese tradition of shinrin yoku (forest bathing). The workshop begins with a guided viewing of the Group of Seven paintings displayed within the exhibition “A Like Vision”: Group of Seven at 100. Following a short break, the group will engage in a silent meditation walk on the McMichael’s grounds, combined with en plein air sketching activities. Back in the studio, the participants will reflect on this experience and then use their preliminary sketch to create a polished painting during an instructor-led painting workshop.
3 hours with a 20-minute break.
The workshop is $10 for McMichael Members and $25 for non-members.
