Join Staten Island Arts and Larissa Schiano-Gonzalez for “Mindfulness, The Nature of the Arts and Teaching.” In this FREE 2-hour long workshop, teaching artists will learn what mindfulness meditation is, its benefits, how it connects with art and teaching, and how it is a pathway to equity and social emotional learning. During this program, dancer/teacher/yoga practitioner/local business owner Larissa Schiano-Gonzalez will guide participants so that they experience the benefits of mindfulness through breathing, basic movement, and meditation. Attendees will participate in and create arts activities that incorporate mindfulness.
