Turner Contemporary’s Looking Mindfully at Art Activity
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.
