Mindfulness practices for artists discussed during PtSA online class

Posted

Mindfulness practices that can benefit art-making and ground a distracted artist in the present moment will be discussed at an upcoming online course led by Meg Kaczyk and presented by the Port Townsend School of the Arts.

The class will take place via the Zoom online videoconferencing platform from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 19.

Kaczyk will lead students in simple meditations, followed by art-making exercises.

The workshop will begin with introductions, then a short, guided meditation followed by a talk about materials.

Kaczyk will also talk about walking meditation. Students will head out individually for a short session, coming back to the group for sharing and art-making.

The session will end with a brief guided “metta meditation.”

The class size is limited to five people.

Kaczyk has studied and practiced vipassana meditation for more than 20 years, with guidance from Rodney Smith, the now retired senior teacher of Seattle Insight Meditation Center.

Admission is $40, with members eligible for a 10 percent discount. Upon registration, students will receive login information and other details via email.
