Introduction to Mindfulness for Modern Living @ Goodwood Museum & Gardens

Be fully present in the moment. The stresses of our modern, busy lifestyles affect both our physical and mental health, draining our sense well-being. But through mindfulness, we can regain our natural ability to live in peace with an open heart and mind.

Learn practical skills that will help you implement mindfulness throughout your life in this day-long workshop. From learning basic tenets of mindfulness to examining your life goals, this class seeks to help students find peace within their own life, regardless of what is happening around them.

In this introductory workshop, you will use a personal life assessment tool from Duke Integrative Medicine Center at Duke University to define your ideal personal vision, identify your personal values that motivate you to make real lifestyle changes, and examine each of the main areas of your life as seen in the Duke Wheel of Health. This Introduction to Mindfulness for Modern living is a combination of instruction and practice with time for discussion and questions and answers.

At the conclusion of this introductory workshop you will understand what mindfulness is, have two basic mindfulness practices that you can use simply and immediately, and started creating your vision for your ideal life.

Introduction to Mindfulness for Modern Living will be held in Goodwood’s Carriage House on Sunday, September 15th from 10 AM to 5 PM. This class is $95. To register, please visit Goodwood’s website at www.goodwoodmuseum.org/goodwood-events/

ClayMation @ LeMoyne Arts

This is an 8 week course, meeting on Wednesdays, September 18-November 6, from 3:30-5:00 and is recommended for children ages 9-12
Students will create their own animated clips using the same techniques as animators at Disney, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon, discovering the process of cartoon and character creation, as well as fundamentals of claymation through project-based learning, a both fun and meaningful experience.

What is Stop Motion Animation?
Stop motion animation is a film making technique for making an animation that is captured one frame at a time, with physical objects moved between frames. When you play back the sequence of images rapidly, it creates the illusion of movement and makes inanimate objects appear to move on their own.
Some memorable animated movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas , Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer or Chicken Run are made with this technique. You also see a lot of TV commercials made the same way.

More about Claymation
What is claymation and why use it?
Claymation, another word for “Clay Animation” is any animation done using a character, or characters, created out of clay. It is a very popular form of stop motion animation, especially for educational purposes as well as teaching children and beginners, as it is interesting, easy and cheap comparing to other methods of animating .
The claymation process involves sculpting characters (art), designing sets (industrial arts, drafting), writing (language arts), and computer work (technology).
