During this course Bernd will guide you through the practice of actively engaging with your own work. Art and Mindfulness will focus on finding ways to improve our connectivity to our work- from idea, to beginnings, to form and into a finished product. The goal is to close the gap between who you are and the art you really want to make. As an instructor, Bernd takes an active role in studying and making suggestions for your work. This workshop will employ secular, non-traditional, Buddhist-based breathing and short meditation exercises to directly support your art practice, in the same way that stretcher bars support a canvas. This workshop is excellent for anyone looking to get more in terms of quality and depth out of their studio time. This workshop is responsive to your needs as an individual and the group as a whole – your art will be the guide. The focus will be on sharpening the mind in order to “sharpen the pencil”. 

Email images of your work to Bernd prior to the start of the class. All disciplines and levels of experience are welcome. If you have questions about this course please contact Lisa Pohl ( to be connected to Bernd directly. 

NOTE: There is not a “Materials List” for this workshop. Use what you have on-hand or what you want to explore.
