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.
