This course invited participants to deepen their relationship to their creative process through mantra, movement and mark making inspired by the exhibitions and galleries at Tate Modern after hours.
Over this four week course we practiced simple yet subtle yoga and meditation techniques applicable to daily art making routine. The sessions combine both collective and individual making, infused with time for discussion and self-reflection.
This five-week course guided participants through a process of meditative making with a playful introduction to the concepts of healing art. Inspired by explorations of artworks in Tate Britain in the stillness of the galleries out of hours, we created small-scale artworks from mixed media that respond to all our five senses and beyond.
