In recognition of this difficult year for international and EU students, UWS is delighted to provide an opportunity for 25 students to take part in a Relaxation through art session (online).
The workshop will be led by professional artist Brenda Coyle.
This taster session will enable students to explore new meditative art techniques, and to discover how to approach art in a stimulating and contemplative manner. It will also help in uncovering and encouraging individual skills, whilst sharing and communicating with each other - within the group format.
Artist Brenda Coyle will give full instructions on how to use paints. Individual guidance will be given along with continuous demonstrations wherever needed during the session. Students will be able to follow an organised step by step approach to meditative learning which nurtures creative growth, strengthens memory, promotes problem solving, increases motor skills, fosters stress relief, which in turn improves and supports wellbeing and emotional balance.
Students will be able to walk away with clear instructions on how to approach each artistic challenge. They will create Beautiful Meditative Postcards, which can be posted to family and friends or shared on social media platforms. Students are not required to have any artistic talent to take part as the instructor will give full guidance.
On the day students will need to have ready:
- An internet connect to be able to connect to the online workshop
- Camera and microphone switched on
- Watercolour paint set
- Watercolour postcard pad
- Watercolour brushes
- A jar of clean water
- Some kitchen towels or a few sheets of toilet paper
- Any scrap papers you may have lying around - back of old photocopy papers/old envelopes/newspapers/inside of old cereal boxes/any type of scrap paper etc
- A smile :-)
