Meditative Art

We can all use moments of peace and tranquility in our day to day lives, moments that can be hard to come by at times. Learn to harness that feeling of zen through Meditative Art, the practice of mindfulness in creating very small pieces of art that will bring you peace and relaxation. 


Join us virtually on Saturday, March 20 at 10am as Aleta Jacobson, artist and instructor, guides us through this practice. Learn how to make loose watercolor washes and then enhance the work with decorative pens. As you focus on the process and let go of the outcome, find that sense of peace in the act of creation. Beginners to advanced students are all encouraged to join! All students will receive a suggested materials and subject list upon registration. The virtual two-hour class will take place through Zoom on Saturday, March 20 at 10am.


Aleta Jacobson is a working artist, instructor, and designer who specializes in creating powerful collage, mixed media, watercolors, and acrylic paintings using a variety of tools and materials. Aleta is inspired by life events, current events, nature, and the environment. Learn more about Aleta’s beautiful work by visiting her website
