In this one-hour workshop, folks will explore the process of mindfulness to create abstract images based on their emotions. Through a short virtual video of A Heap of Random Sweepings, participants will learn about artist Sameer Farooq’s process of art-making involving meditation, observation, reflection, and imagination. Then, a mindfulness exercise will lead them to explore their individual emotions and inner life, highlighting the importance of their individual experiences and expressions. Following the meditation, participants will be guided through the creation of abstract collages or drawings focusing on colours and shapes and reflecting on a chosen emotion.
