There are so many amazing resources that I have found online and on Social media that have been important in my journey. I wanted to compile a list for you to check out as well. These are just a few of my favorites to get you started, but I will continue to update this list and add new resources I discover along the way. There are so many amazing people doing amazing work in the field of creativity, mindfulness, and self-care. I invite you to leave comments and include your own inspirational online sites or social media profile that have been inspirational to you. We can all learn from each other!
In no particular order:
Amy Maricle of Mindful Art Studio. Amy is a trained art therapist who uses her knowledge to guide others on a creative path focused on stress relief and mindfulness. Though technically not art therapy, her creative prompts are often quite cathartic. She has a wide variety of offerings from virtual classes and retreats to free weekly Slow Drawing workshops. Her blog is packed with inspiration, tip, and prompts. She can also be be found on Instagram and Facebook.
Wendy Ann Greenhalgh is an author, artist, and creative mindfulness practitioner. She has written some fabulous books which I have featured on my Book List. She has a wonderful series of talks and meditations available on the Insite Timer where she discusses her thoughts on creative mindfulness. She can also be found on Instagram and Facebook.
The Insight Timer which I mentioned above is a wonderful resource. It is chalked full of both free and paid meditations, discussions, and courses on almost any topic you might want. They have an app that you can download to your phone. I use it all the time for both guided meditations and gentle sounds or white noise while I am working or painting.
Laura Horn Art, Laura offers an amazing podcast that is so inspirational. I have it bookmarked on my Spotify account and I tune in often!

Art Breaks are for everyone! They are moments of creativity big or small for infants, kids, and adults. They offer a connection to mindfulness that can enrich your life. A practice in creative mindfulness is perfect for anyone looking to establish a richer connection to themselves. You do not even need to be an artist to explore creative mindfulness practices. We are all born to create.
