Have you ever been so engrossed in an activity that you have lost track of time, only concentrating on the activity? That could be described as a form of meditation.
Traditional meditation focusses on the body and breathing, emotions and thoughts. By creating art and focussing only on the process and moment, we can have fun, and forget about the ‘end result’.
Try out these fun activities with your students to incorporate mindfulness and meditation practises into art.
This teaching resource links to Art & Design, plus Citizenship and PSHE when used to discuss mindfulness and mental health. This educational resource can be adapted to suit all ages in KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4 & KS5.
