About.

Look mindfully at art.

In this simple calming activity your students will be doing a guided meditation on J.M.W Turner’s painting The Evening Star. What can you see when you spend time with an artwork?

This resource is part of Turner Contemporary’s Creative Mindfulness activities. In support of the recovery curriculum, these seven Creative Mindfulness activities have been designed to help students relax, recuperate, and refocus in school time, as well as to inspire creativity.

You can use these videos in the classroom as a lesson starter for any subject, to begin or end the day, or as a creative prompt for art lessons. Each of the seven activities has been broken down into step by step chapters you and your students can join in with; the activities take 5-10 minutes.

This resource is suitable for KS3, but also students and adults of all ages can use these resources to find a moment of creative calm.

About Turner Contemporary.

Turner Contemporary is one of the UK’s leading art galleries. Founded to celebrate JMW Turner’s connection to Margate in 2001, the David Chipperfield designed gallery opened in 2011.

Their work extends beyond showcasing world-class exhibitions, to driving the social and economic regeneration of Margate and East Kent and transforming lives in one of the most deprived areas of the UK. Since opening, Turner Contemporary has welcomed over 3.5million visits, put over £70million back into the Kent economy and connected with thousands of people from the local community through their world-class programme.

Every year they work with thousands of children and young people from Margate and Kent. Their pioneering learning programme champions children’s leadership through the arts. Inspired by JMW Turner’s sense of curiosity and inquiry, the gallery offers a space for everyone to discover different ways of seeing, thinking and learning.
