Mindful Museum: Virtual Slow Art Appreciation
Slow art is a growing movement to mindfully observe and appreciate art. This hourlong virtual program guides you through centering techniques and a breathing practice followed by an intentional observation of Allegorical Portrait of an Artist in Her Studio by Michiel van Musscher. Sharing and discussion are encouraged. This is a great practice to calm the mind and experience art in a deeper way. For ages 16 and up.

How to prepare for this program:
– You are welcome to participate as much or as little you like. Though discussion and social interaction are main intentions of this program, it is fine if you prefer to have your mic and video turned off throughout. Please also be considerate of your fellow participants.
– Choose a quiet space with minimal distractions. Feel free to create as comfortable and calming of an area as you like. Sit in a supportive chair, dim the lights, or light a candle.
– While you can use a smartphone to join, for an optimal experience we recommend using a desktop, laptop, or tablet so that you can see slides and meeting tools on a larger screen.
– Log on a few minutes early to get familiar with the view options, chat box, and other functions.
– We’ll call on and identify participants by whatever name appears on their Zoom account.
– Use headphones and microphone for best sound quality, and silence alerts from nearby devices.
