Learn More About Mindfulness Painting

Background and Mission:

Alisa E. Clark believes in the power of mindfulness painting: the power to be peaceful while being fully aware and in the present moment. While receiving a B.F.A. from Pratt Institute and an M.S. in
education, Alisa gained a deeper understanding of painting as a meditative practice. While her formal training has helped her understand her painting process better, it is not when her process began. She began entering the “Mindful Zone” while painting and creating when she could first pick up a crayon. Unaware that her painting process was an exercise in mindfulness, she continued to make art throughout her life. She just did what came naturally for many engaged in the artistic process: being present, noticing, meditating and being aware. Her recent exploration of mindfulness has prompted her to look back on a lifetime of artmaking and notice that her painting process is not unique. In fact, it is quite universal. The world is now using the word “mindfulness” to describe an experience that is in no way new. It is easily as old as the paintbrush. Alisa has begun to seek for ways to share her painting process and encourage people to engage in the process alongside her. Alisa hopes that Mindfulness Paintings offers others a new opportunity to be more mindful, peaceful and aware.
