Puff-Puff-Paint Class – Mindful Mandala Dot Art
November 4, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$25.00
Why Should I Take a Mindful Mandala Dot Art class?
Art of all kinds help individuals process things when words seem hard to come by. It can even help us with the experiential side (the emotional side) of whatever it is we are processing. The type of art used for this activity is pointillism. Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Using small dots to form a bigger whole can be really reflective of a lot of things in our lives. Using dots also helps us develop the ability to SLOW DOWN and increases our level of mindfulness. Society tells us we are what we do, so we constantly hustle and strive to do more. We might increase productivity yet feel depleted afterwards. Why? Because we are doing things in a robotic way, not connected to the reason we are doing things. We are doing without intention. This activity forces us to slow down.
General Class Info: Channel your creative fire with a little help from your friends and a sparked-up pre-roll! We encourage you to bring an open mind, as Heather Hostetter guides us through the creative process of transferring ideas from your imagination to a “canvas” you can take home and proudly display.
Many artists use cannabis to conjure creativity and ground them in the moment with their medium. We encourage cannabis use to calm the nerves and get the artist ideas flowing across the substrate. Our goal is to create more than a piece of art, we want to build a sense of community where we have fun and break the stigma surrounding cannabis, one painting project at a time!
Class length: 60-90 minutes
