Hello, my second online workshop from a new series called art CONNECTS will be all about resilience, the capacity to cope with the emotional or mental crisis and to recover quickly from difficulties. Resilience exists when one uses mental processes and specific behaviours in promoting personal assets, protecting the integrity of body and mind, and becoming more self-aware.
Sometimes, overwhelmed by negative information and uncontrolled life events, we lose the resilience and fall into a dark space of worry, judgement, and criticism. This online expressive arts workshop is for everyone, who would like to explore the topic of resilience and work on his/her/their own capacity to create more spaciousness for creative work in daily life.
Date: 8 April 2020, 6pm
Duration: 75-90 min.
Number of participants in each meeting: 3 spots available
Materials: pencils, pens, sharpies, paper, scissors
Facilitator: Joanna Wróblewska
LONGING FOR CONNECTION
Have you ever felt like the more time you spend online, the more lonely and disconnected you become? Technology has changed our lifestyle massively in many ways. While we can connect easily with friends far away, somehow we lose the depth of being with each other here and now. Online interaction can feel shallow and unreal. Sometimes, it lacks meaning and leaves us with the uncomfortable feeling of emptiness.
We believe that online connection can be used efficiently and with awareness to establish meaningful relationships with people around the world.
Let’s reconnect with ourselves and others through a real experience of art-making!In this international online meetup, participants will connect through Skype and make art together with the support of two expressive arts facilitators. We will enjoy the flow of creativity and imagination using different art forms.
The ability to make art is what we all share and what brings us back to ourselves. Art can help us to express and communicate, to listen, to appreciate little things, and to be together!
THROUGH ARTS WE RECONNECT
replace technological isolation with a true connection
relax into art-making
practice how to let go of judgement
receive the gift of true attention from yourself and others
We will use basic art materials that everyone has at home to make art and have fun together! We will focus on easy tasks and look at the art pieces in the form of a dialogue.
See you online 🙂
