Adult & Teen Art Workshops


Introduction to Contemplative Art

Saturday, January 28, 10:00am-1:00pm
$40 Teens | $55 Adults | +$15 Materials Fee


This Introduction to Contemplative Art Workshop focuses on a meditative approach to creating art. Artist Suzanne Frazier will define Contemplative Art, present a meditative approach to art making, and give participants time to create a drawing using oil pastels. Art is the perfect metaphor for the contemplative experience. You will explore ways to access your creativity, support your artistic style and express your heart-centered perspective. If you have always wanted to explore drawing in your own style in a supportive atmosphere or wanted to draw from a meditative point-of-view, this is the workshop for you. 

No art experience is necessary! For participants with no art-making experience, you will have the opportunity to discover your creativity in a safe, supportive environment. For experienced artists, the workshop will expand your creative experience to inclue a meditative approach to your personal expression. 

The materials fee includes:

  • drawing board
  • a box of 36 oil pastels
  • drawing paper
  • printed handout materials
- all of which the students get to take home with them. 


Since 1992, Suzanne Frazier has taught oil pastel drawing classes in her studio and art retreats at the Abbey of St. Walburga, The Creative Life Center, and Ghost Ranch. She combines a BFA degree in Studio Arts from the University of Colorado with a BA degree in Philosophy to create a new approach to art making. Suzanne's art studio is located in Longmont, CO.
