Slow Art Day
Saturday, 11am to 4pm, 4 April 2020
Observe, relax, be mindful
Suitable for all ages and abilities, families and solo visitors
Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.
The longer we engage with an artwork the more we are able to think more deeply about it. We to notice increasing details and allow ourselves to fully experience works of art. This unhurried time improves our observation skills and as with other relaxation activities, like mindfulness and meditation, when done regularly provides a broad range of health and cognitive benefits. Sharing this activity with others helps deepen our appreciation of art and the people we are sharing it with.
Take some time out of your busy week to wind down and look carefully and closely at art. Join us on Slow Art Day where we encourage looking at art through leisurely drawing and conversation activities.
Gallery volunteers will be on hand with structured sketching activities and conversation prompters that provide guidance, support and inspire deeper looking.
The event is free to attend and materials are provided.
Bookings not required.
