CANCELED: Sketching and Mindfulness


Saturday, March 21, 2020, 9:30am to 11:30am


Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford Street

Two sketched leaves.

We continue to monitor the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and prioritize the safety of our visitors, staff, students and volunteers. In the interests of reducing the number of people on campus and slowing the opportunity for transmission, the university museums are closing to the public, at the end of business on Thursday, March 12 until further notice. All public programs, classes, and events have been canceled. Over the next few weeks we will be assessing the situation and reviewing options for when we will be able to re-open to the public.

Taught by a professional artist and long-term, casual mindfulness practitioner, this two-hour workshop will explore how sketching can be a practice for deepening mindful awareness of our surroundings, and how mindful awareness can enrich our sketching practice by helping us quiet inner voices. By observing and drawing natural objects from the museum’s collections, we will explore ways to focus our attention, learn to see more deeply, and record our observations more carefully.
