The Art of Paying Attention: Workshop with Stephanie Medford

  • Bleeding Heart Art Space 9140 118 Avenue Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5B 0V1 Canada (map)

Join Stephanie Medford for a mindfulness workshop using all our senses as we explore and then reflect.

How often do you walk around your neighborhood without really noticing what’s there? What wonders might you discover if you started to pay more attention to your surrounding? Elizabeth Gilbert says that, “When you are attentive you see that every hour is different. It's a new universe every minute."

In this workshop, we’ll go for a walk around the neighborhood and use all our senses to explore and discover. Then we’ll return to the gallery to create a mixed media artwork based on what we found. We'll learn to open up our eyes and ears to the creative inspiration that is all around us as we practice observation, mindfulness, and non-judgement.

Supplies for mixed media artwork will be provided.
