Election Day Professional Development | Mindfulness and Multisensory Art


Election Day Professional Development | Mindfulness and Multisensory Art

Join us at the NBMAA for a chance to recharge, renew, and refresh your perspective among the masterpieces of the Museum! This full or half-day mindfulness workshop and professional development experience begins in the galleries with an exercise of slowing down and engaging thoughtfully in the surroundings and the world around you. Workshop activities open with an all-levels yoga practice in the NBMAA’s newest special exhibition, NEW/NOW: Anila Quayyum Agha, followed by guided tours of the art in our permanent collections in and outside of the Museum, hands-on art making, and will conclude with stimulating breakout sessions and engaging conversation.
