Being mindful about the way we look at art is a form of meditation. While slowly looking at art, we find connections we may not see at first glance. By using visualization techniques, students can find a deeper connection to works of art that they wouldn’t normally pay attention to. Watch our quick meditations geared to relax the muscles, heighten concentration, and calm the classroom.
This meditation takes students on an exploration of things they can and can’t see in this Japanese print of the famous Shinto shrine in Kyoto, Japan.
