Connect, Learn, and Grow Episode Series: Meditative Drawing in Challenging Times   (back)
Connect, Learn, and Grow is a new online series offering meaningful, timely, and relevant virtual learning opportunities for UW–Madison employees. The series will feature a variety of speakers and topics, with a new episode posted online every Wednesday. Each short and free episode will have opportunities for participants to reflect and share learning gained. Episodes will continue to be available online after they are released.

By engaging in this series, you will:

1. Connect with the University of Wisconsin–Madison community.
2. Learn new skills and information to help be successful in current and future roles.
3. Grow through self-reflection and navigate in this time and place.

The historical Buddha, Siddhãrta Gautama, taught a simple mindfulness practice: “When walking, walk; when standing, stand; when sitting, sit; when lying down, lie down”. He could as well have said “when drawing, draw”.

Mindful drawing is an embodied practice. In other words: bring yourself (your mind and your body) to the present moment and get immersed in the act of drawing without doing anything else simultaneously.

Join Wheelhouse Studios Programming staff members Taylor Franklin and Alanna Stapleton in a Live Microsoft Teams video session to engage in simple creative meditation exercises. They will walk you through two easy, calming drawing methods that can help you manage stress and anxiety during this uncertain time. This session is open to any UW staff member, no art experience or skill required. This session will be recorded to reference at any time.
