Relaxation Through Art

Mindfulness is a proven technique to help with stress, depression and anxiety, yet many people find the practice of meditation either difficult, monotonous or just time-consuming.

Relaxation through Art is a personal practise that I have been developing and teaching since 2010, focused to bring a bit of fun into this sometimes-daunting mindful world and its aim is to show that there are many ways to manage your stress with a variety of relaxation art exercises and ideas to learn and practise in your everyday life.

My teaching style incorporates artistic knowledge with meditative coaching techniques. I believe that everyone can acquire the skills they need to make beautiful art. We are all different and each person requires a different approach to unlock their potential and promote self-confidence.

My aim is to empower my students to find their own paths.

Each session starts with a short, guided artistic meditation using various unique mark making exercises designed and inspired by ancient established approaches - to help students relax and de-stress. During each lesson we work toward producing a final art piece using any materials the students may have at hand - pastels, paints, colouring pens or just pencils etc.

These classes are focused on creating regular meditative approaches to art, using minimum materials and very achievable daily goals. Students are invited to start an art practise which they can develop over time, which makes this course totally perfect for all age ranges and abilities. You don't need to be artistic or able to draw, all classes are about relaxing and helping you find a way to practice being mindful through art. There is never any pressure to create a masterpiece, though you will be amazed at all your final pieces!
