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.

Kick off a month of fun with this introductory workshop to drawing with ink.
Led by artist Turner Davis, whose mixed media work walks the edge between autobiography and the fantastic, the workshop will cover a range of basic techniques with plenty of room for experimentation.
Inktober is a month-long daily ink drawing challenge started in 2009 by illustrator Jake Parker, who began the project to improve his skills and make drawing a habit.
Join artists all over the world as you continue on your own through the rest of October, and watch your skills grow. Then, come back and show off your work toward the end of the month at Teen Night on October 26.
