Art as a mindfulness practice and the act of intuitive drawing and painting is a practice accessible to all regardless of art experience or skill. This class is an introduction to creativity for stress relief, establishing a connection with your innate creativity, and incorporating creativity into your daily life. This class will focus on art as process rather than on the technical aspects of drawing and painting or on a finished product. Activities will consist of guided meditations and instructor led exercises. Students will also have the opportunity to experiment with combining what they have learned from the exercises. No art experience required.  The supply list will be sent upon registration.

Jhilam Sanyal was born in India and enrolled in her first art class at age 3 where her natural talent was first noted by her instructor. Jhilam engaged in drawing and painting throughout her life and in 2012, focused her work on abstract painting and design.

Jhilam paints intuitively and often creates vibrant abstract paintings in acrylic, ink and watercolor that are unapologetically bold and reflect an inner sense of curiosity, playfulness, and an astute ability to create artwork with energetic and seemingly chaotic components.

Jhilam also creates nature-influenced collages and designs book and CD covers. Jhilam frequently travels and her work is influenced by the colors, sounds, sights, and interactions with those she meets along the way. As a tribute to her Indian heritage and her very first art teacher, all the titles of Jhilam’s work are in her native language of Bengali. Her work has been exhibited at the Cambridge Art Association, Arlington Center for the Arts, Concord Center for the Visual Arts, Cambridge Center for Adult Education, as well as at 537 Main Street in Acton, MA and Gallery Gold in Kolkata, India.

In addition to art, Jhilam is also a developmental coach and creativity facilitator.
