“I AM” – Integrating Art & Mindfulness - is a new user friendly online course. Participants can explore the importance of leading a holistic lifestyle and how to integrate it simply into their daily routine. This course provides participants with tools to support their own positive mental health and wellbeing and that of their students through the medium of art and meditative practices.

The “I AM” course is a gentle and thought provoking course that offers the participant calm, relaxing and peaceful meditations through the use of self-soothing techniques and exercises to allow introspective and contemplative reflection.

“I AM” seamlessly integrates with both the Visual Arts and SPHE curriculum. The course considers how art, meditation and mindfulness can be used to manage stress, increase one’s ability to cope in challenging situations and build mental and emotional resilience.

The “I AM” course provides a yearly scheme that demonstrates how mindfulness and the Visual Arts are integrated. Individual lesson plans expand on the yearly plan. There is no need to possess any perceived artistic abilities. This is a course that offers a platform to use the medium of art as a self-soothing tool.
