One Hour / One Painting with Peter Clothier

Sit in front of a single artwork for a full hour and just absorb art. Clothier will give you a brief introduction to the principles of closed-eye breath meditation, encouraging participants to relax and refresh the eyes. This leads to an alternation of closed- and open-eye work, with the facilitator guiding the process with instructions and directions. All of this will help you to see the painting before you the way the artist has created it. This event will be taking place at the Laguna Art Museum, 307 Cliff Drive, on March 28th at 7:00pm and is free with museum admission.
