Drawing can be a form of meditation. When we learn to “see” with an artist’s eye, we also strengthen our mental focus. This course will teach creative exercises from the Fine Art and Buddhist traditions aimed at improving realist drawing abilities. Students will work with monochromatic materials as they practice the elements of drawing: composition, line, form and awareness.

Level: No experience necessary, all levels welcome.

To bring: all materials will be provided

Instructor bio

Gabrielle Abbott is an award winning, international artist known for her large chalk murals. The six years she spent in Europe studying renaissance painting and contemporary art taught her how to combine ancient traditions with modern ideas. Currently, she’s based in Seattle and teaches fine arts at Antioch University. In addition to her art career, Gabrielle is a yoga teacher and practitioner of Vipassana meditation. Her goal is to nurture the artist within each of her students so they can bring the creative spark fully into all areas of their lives.
