Slow Art & Mindfulness
All sessions are open to all.
Please Note: Starting in July, Slow Art & Mindfulness will be free with the purchase of General Admission. Pricing reflects General Admission.
Join us as we use art and guided meditation to connect to the moment and create a deeper understanding of artworks the fourth Thursday of every month. Take a little extra time to look, listen and relax your mind with our teams of museum educators and mindfulness guides. Presented in partnership with Hospice of the Valley, each session focuses on one work of art in the Museum, blending guided mindfulness practice with a deeper reflection of an individual artwork. Each week, we will explore a different artwork on view.

Materials provided, but you are welcome to bring your own sketchbook.
All skill levels welcome (even if that means stick figures).
