Course Description

RISD CE course: Walking as Creative Practice

Walking* can be an amazingly transformative act. Many cultures have traditions of walking meditations, and throughout history many artists and thinkers have deemed walking practices critical to their creativity. Together, we will explore ways to bring mindfulness and creativity to the practice, tuning into our immediate surroundings and creating work. Each week will focus on a different physical sense or medium (sight, sound, video, physical sensation, smell, taste) and use mindfulness activities to sharpen observation skills as a jumping off point for the creative exercises. 

*Note that walking is used as an umbrella term to mean moving or journeying in various forms. This course welcomes persons with disabilities or those with limited mobility to participate.


Students must be an adult age 18 or older to participate.
