Chan and Art — A Way to Calm the Mind

Hsi Lai Temple Dharma School had conducted a virtual “Chan and Art” workshop from August 2nd to 23rd on every Friday. Through the class, students not only learned to draw, also calm their mind, analytical thinking, being patient, and observing things from a different perspective.

There were four sessions with different topics: Perspective Drawing, Notan Art, Optical Illusion Art, and Tessellation Art. Each method has its unique meaning. We were hoping that through the journey of drawing, the students can learn to think from many perspectives in their lives and calm their minds in stressful times.
