Time: 4 pm to 5 pm
This 30 minute workshop with Jessica Bertram, Assistant Director of Youth Programs for NBAF, was made with the art community in mind to ground the body and mind with a check-in, easy body movement for all ages and affirmations. Mindfulness meditation increases your ability to direct awareness to the present moment. Unobstructed, your focus on the here and now will enable you to find your flow and increase your productivity.
