This project focuses on understanding art done by the mentally ill, known in the art world as Art Brut, Raw Art or Outsider Art.

Mindfulness Meditation

The practice of mindfulness refers to our efforts and discipline at being fully present in the now, of living in the present moment. Mindfulness practice nourishes an understanding of the interconnectedness of our lives with the larger world we inhabit, allowing us to develop an enhanced awareness of the present, a stillness that cultivates a mind of love, compassion, kindness and peace.

Beginners are most welcome!
