Wellbeing at Clare Hall: Mindful Art Group to begin in new year

21 December 2022 College life

All College members are welcome to sign up for Clare Hall’s new Mindful Art Group, which will meet on the first Tuesday of each month from February 2023 from 5-6.30pm.

The theme for this year’s group is Fascination, in which participants are invited to notice, interrogate and produce artwork reflecting things that spark curiosity in their immediate environment.

Throughout 2023:

In each session we will have the opportunity to share our creations, and/or to speak about our creative activities that month. We will also learn about mindfulness and meditation, and complete short artistic practices, such as:

Session 1 will focus on Winter.

Sessions are being facilitated by Katherine Selby, Communications Manager at Clare Hall, who is a Wellbeing Advocate within the University. Katherine has produced artwork for some thirteen years, spanning photography, drawings and poetry. She is interested in mindfulness and meditation, and the interrelation between them and artistic practice.

To sign up for the Mindful Art Group, please login to Clare Hall’s Intranet and complete this form.

For any queries, please email Katherine via
