Friday AM Centering Session - Bringing Mindfulness to the Wheel
Fridays from 10am-1pm
Instructor: Kathryn Whitlock
Winter Term (16-week course) January 5-April 19
Bridging the gap between Mindfulness-Based Art Therapy and clay work, participants of this group will receive technical instruction in wheel throwing alongside Mindfulness skills training and group-based Art Therapy. The primary aim of this class is to illuminate the connection between Mindfulness skills and conscientious engagement in clay work in order to facilitate a greater focus on mindful awareness both inside and outside of the studio.
