Reflections on Colour:
Art & Nature Meditation Workshop
Sunday, September 15
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 an instructor-led silent meditation walk on the McMichael’s grounds in the Humber River Vallery, followed by a post-walk conversation in which participants may, if they choose, share their observations. Following a break, the group will tour the exhibition Maud Lewis, after which participants will be encouraged to express their thoughts and emotions in an acrylic painting studio.
3 hours with a 20-minute break.
The workshop is free with admission and by registration only.
A $5 donation is suggested. All donation proceeds will go towards McMichael’s Creative Learning Materials Fund.
- No previous painting experience is required.
- This workshop is open to adults only.
- Please wear close-toe shoes and consider bringing sunscreen and/or bug spray.
