Join us to tour works in the SDMA collection where artists were inspired by meditation and then embark on a meditative drawing of your own with guidance from Museum Educator Sheena Dowling.
Meditation is a mindfulness practice where an individual by focusing on a particular thought, activity, or object with the intention of bringing awareness to the moment achieves a state of calm and peace.
