The six week course uses art activities as a means to center, relax, and recalibrate

Class experience

  • Students will be able to identify and articulate various mechanisms of mindfulness, as they learn about art techniques such as abstraction, improvisation, cubism, and Impressionism. Additionally, students will have an understanding of life skills, after class has concluded including: cool downs, centering, and thoughtful action.
I have worked extensively in Art residencies for special needs students, as well as students all over the Autism Spectrum. These experiences have led to private consultation work with Manhattan child psychologists in partnerships focusing specifically on Art as a communication tool. This past year, I have worked with a few public schools in the Bronx who have lost teachers due to covid. Our series of mindful art creation turned out to be beneficial for students and staff alike. I am certified in Vinyasa Yoga, and practice meditation regularly, on a good week :)
