Explore the connection between meditation and drawing by practicing simple and expressive drawing techniques. Experience how the act of drawing itself can be used as a meditation technique.
Focus on drawing expressive rhythmic lines that are analogous to musical beats. Draw/paint non-objective patterns and shapes while thinking about the ritual of breathing.
Build up paint, then scrape it down. Release tension through repetitive cycles. Let go of representational drawing and explore expressive mark making instead.
