still life – engage with art mindfully

Increase connection to art and learn the skill of mindfulness.

still life

How long do you think people look at your artworks? A recent study found that the average amount of time people spend looking at an artwork is 17 seconds. And that includes reading the label!

In this workshop audiences are guided in looking in a slow and mindful way, paying particular attention to the formal elements in the art – colour, line, texture and form. This technique has been shown to reduce stress and boost mood as well as enable people to create a strong connection with the object.

Still life sessions are varied and can be anything from 30 minutes to 2 hour workshop depending on the needs of your programme. Delivered online or on-site.
