Reflective space is a project led by artist in residence David Smith. This course brings together art and mindfulness. It will take place over the course of five Saturday sessions. In these sessions participants will be guided through exercises and demonstrations that explore breathing, the act of making marks and creative decisions.
Two of the five sessions will be facilitated by Derval Dunford, a practitioner and teacher of mindfulness, Yoga Nidra and breath work. The other three sessions will be run by David Smith and will focus on applying mental focus and breath to visual work.
The project is aimed at adults of all ages and beginners or student artists. A simple materials list will be sent to participants ahead of the sessions. Towards the end of the sessions participants are invited to participate in and collaborate on a larger scale, group artwork that brings these themes to vivid life. Through breath, ink, gesture and light, rediscover how observe, let go of thought and create.
The sessions will take place over Zoom. Each participant will be emailed a Zoom link in advance.
