Music & Mindful Art: Bamboo Flute Melody & Free Flow Drawing

About Music & Mindful Art: Bamboo Flute Melody & Free Flow Drawing

Join us for a mind journey through music and free flow drawing.

This is a wellbeing workshop we designed to relax your mind. We believe making art that responds to music can facilitate mindfulness, and encourage emotional expression. We would like to bring this unique experience to you through the beautiful melody of a bamboo flute.

The bamboo flute is a traditional instrument made out of a single piece of bamboo, and it’s most widely known as an instrument of Chinese music. The music played on bamboo flutes is often called ethereal, calming and peaceful.

Participants will join us for a mind journey through guided relaxation and imaginary technique. Our workshop leader will play several songs using flute during the workshop, and participants will make free flow drawings, a very simple collage that reflect the music you hear. The session will be delivered at a slow and relaxing pace, and there will time for reflection too.

List of songs:
Set 1: 姑苏行 - Journey to Guzu

Set 2: 满江红 - All Red the River / 茉莉花 - Jasmine /我们的田野 - Our Wild Meadows

Set 2: Down By the Salley Garden/Women of Ireland/The Black Rose/Will ye come back again

What participants need to prepare:
A writing tool of your choice (pen/pencil/marker)
Any colouring tool of your choice with assorted colours(colouring pencils/ sharpie or colouring markers/crayons, etc)
White paper for drawing
Quiet Space during the session
Flat surface for drawing
Target Participants: Adults (Age 18 and above)

Language: English
