Meditative Artwork
June 1st 3:00PM – 5:00PM

Can you remember the sense of peace and enjoyment you felt
while coloring as a child? Use colored pencils or gel pens to
create a meditative state.  Repetitive motions such as coloring
(or running, walking, dancing) can help strengthen your focus and
easily shift your attention back to a relaxed state. Stressful
thoughts and future worries can be simply pushed aside as you
take time to enjoy the present.
