Reducing Stress This Holiday Season Through Meditation

Meditation

Thursday, December 4, 2014, at 7 p.m.
Facilitated by Jim Rose

The scientific community has recently been exploring the use of meditation as a healing modality. Join Jim Rose, Rutgers University, retired executive Johnson and Johnson who has been meditating for over 30 years as he discusses the extraordinary effect of meditation to reduce stress-related responses, improve concentration, enhance clarity of thought and mental equilibrium. He will also present a simple, yet powerful meditation technique that can enrich one’s life personally, professionally, spiritually and help with seasonal stress.

Led by Earl Weldon

Class size is limited to 20. We're asking the waitlisted people from last September's course first!

April 9 - Creating 3-D space on a 2-D sheet of paper - Using size, overlapping, 1- and 2-point perspective to create the illusion of depth in drawing

April 23 - Seeing and rendering light and shadow - Discussion of light and how it defines form for our eyes

April 30 - Bringing the drawing to life - Shading techniques, blurring, hatching, cross-hatching, etc.

May 14 - Learning to see - Breaking free of mental conventions, attention to negative space

May 28 - Working both ends from the middle - Experimenting with adding both the lights AND the darks ... a drawing exercise with white chalk and pencil/charcoal on grey paper

 

All sessions have an initial teaching segment, followed by drawing time. Students can bring in additional drawings, done during the week and utilizing the prior week’s skill, which Earl can critique for them.

Starting with the first class, bring:

  • at least 3 sharpened pencils (#2 pencils are fine)
  • 3 or 4 sheets of paper at least 9” x 12” but not bigger than 11” x 17”
  • Eraser (if there are good erasers on your pencils, that’s fine, or bring a separate  eraser, hard or kneaded)

  • at least 3 better quality drawing pencils of different leads
