10 Parishes Festival of visual and performing arts

Karen Patterson & Flora Duley: Stopping and Looking

 A morning of Art and Yoga

Throughout history, some of the most valuable experiences, discoveries and insights have been had by human beings who have taken time to look. But with the fast pace of life today, and the increasing overload of information, we are rapidly losing this vital skill.

This workshop will take place in the tranquil rural yoga studio and gardens of Extons Barn, and will give busy minds an opportunity to stop, to look, to draw and to move!

Our activities will involve three stages:
Careful looking
Mental picturing
Expression through drawing and movement

We will spend time looking at things – such as nature or yoga pictures, in a clear and ordered way, so that we can leave aside the busy thoughts that cloud our vision, and see what is really there. Clear observation enables us to form our own mental picture of something, and that in turn forms the basis for an outward expression. On this workshop we will use art and yoga movements to give our own active expression to the forms and qualities we have observed.

No previous experience of art or yoga is necessary. Numbers are limited so prior booking is essential. 

Flora Duley is an Artist/Educator.
