Achieving Flow in the Art Room

An artist/educator introduces her students to meditation practice and the concept of "flow."

Last summer I gave a presentation at the Center of Cartoon Studies Educators Symposium.  My art classes had completed exercises in mindfulness and I wanted to discuss what we had learned.  The simple comic that follows was part of my presentation.  It offers the concept of “Flow” as a way to engage reluctant learners. 

I am posting it Festival Season as a resource for artists and educators.

  1. I love this–especially the depiction of those snarky teens balanced by the path to the flow. Besides being useful for teaching, I appreciate the cheerleading for the flow for myself. Yay, Cara!
