Slow down with Vesterheim and the work of Christian Midjo at a S.L.O.W.A.R.T workshop from 1:30-3:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 3.
This program will combine mindfulness meditation, focused observation, and fine art. Slowing down reveals complexity we would otherwise miss because of how many distractions we have in our lives.
Participants will spend time learning techniques for mindfulness and observation and then put those new skills into practice by spending an extended period of time looking at a single painting in the gallery.
The workshop will be co-led by John Snyder, a local artist, and Zach Row-Heyveld, Vesterheim’s exhibitions manager.
The workshop is $10. Space is limited, registration in advance is required. Register through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling the museum at 563-382-9681.
Christian Midjo: Choose Your Own Adventure is sponsored by Greg and Karen Bruening.
