Mindful Drawing Retreat

  • Artelier 10007 80 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta (map)

Take some time away from your busy life and reconnect with drawing in a whole new way during this weekend retreat. Whether you’ve been drawing your whole life or have never picked up a pencil, this retreat will help give you the confidence to create the drawing practice you’ve always dreamed of. Using mindfulness techniques, we’ll cover these strategies to help you overcome your inner critic and have fun with drawing: paying attention, getting curious, finding softness, letting go of judgment, and working through resistance.

Through a variety of fun, light-hearted exercises, you'll learn to drop the goal of making perfect representations of the world and instead use drawing to appreciate the present moment. You'll experiment with new materials and new methods and you'll practice slowing down and enjoying the process. This is not about learning to draw. It's about learning to enjoy drawing and feed your creativity.
