Art can help us reduce stress, work through anxiety, and process emotions. In a year of a global pandemic, racial injustice, and political upheaval, it’s important to take time for self-care. Join SAM educators as we explore the art of empathy for others as well as ourselves. Each lunchtime session will be 45 minutes and include a meditation activity as well as a deep look at works from SAM's collection. Sign up for one or all sessions. The webinar format allows you to munch on your salad without worrying whether anyone can see the spinach in your teeth.
Session 2: Self-Regulation
Feelings are the way our body interprets emotions. Once you are more aware of how you feel and what emotions have caused these sensations, you can start to self-regulate. Art can be a way to move through and experience a full range of emotions. In this session, we will have a guided breathing exercise before making our own meditative drawings.
This session will be led by Kelsey Donahue, Assistant Manager for Gallery Learning, and Lynda Swenson, Assistant Manager for Studio Programs .
