MINDFUL ART PROGRAM Overview

Purpose:   Exploring creative immersion to bring self empowerment and provide youth with the chance to develop vital life skills for handling stressful situations, expressing emotions in a healthy way.

Description:  Each 4 hour class explores organically with alternating practices of Meditative Breath work & Imagination Exercises and Painting on Canvas. Participants discover techniques to combine awareness with choice as they are guided to express creatively with color, emotion and authentic expression.  A hands on learning approach innovates the experience and teaches fundamentals such as brush care, erasing, background styles, balance, shading, highlighting and layers.  Insights are shared at group and individual levels, where needed and are guided to support abstract theory invoking the creative within for genuine expression.  

Outcomes:   With over 100 students experiencing the Mindful Art program to date, we've found expansion of expression and increase in confidence.  Most youth were previously unexposed to awareness and meditative activities.  Survey results reported high ratings of enjoyment for activities like meditation, qigong and breath work.  Many children asked for more time or additional classes to paint more often.  

Materials Used in Group:  Canvas, Paint, 5 Specialized Brushes, Aprons, Washrags, Drop Cloths, Easels, Water buckets, Meditation, Music, Painting instruction, Mindfulness Instruction & more. 

Rising Zen brings the cultural service of Mindful Art Programs to communities by creating classes with a creative infusion and life-balance practice.  Some of our  work includes the 2017 programs with at-risk youth at HandyInc.org and our upcoming 2018 endeavors with Boys & Girls Club.

You can support our overall outreach and services to expand the Mindful Art Program below.  Or, by inviting Desiree Kim to live paint at a charity of your choice.
