Art and Meditation examines how meditation can affect art both in
terms of practice and content. Meditation is arguably the most
ancient, powerful, and yet simple spiritual practice in the world.
It is known in various forms in nearly all times and cultures, and
plays a part in every religious tradition. The class will be
structured with presentations, museum visits, studio time, and
discussion of readings and reviews of artwork. Art from various
spiritual traditions such as Taoist, Shaker, Haitian and Huichol
will be shown. Contemporary forms of meditative art will also be
explored. Course requirements will include completing 3 art
projects, participation in discussions, and a class presentation.
All media are welcome.
