Colby College Museum of Art


Experience greater mind-body connection through our in-person Artful Meditation and Expression program. Participants will join art therapist Bodhi Simpson in a guided meditation session in the Colby Museum galleries, followed by an art making experience in our Mirken Education Center. This offering will support your personal comfort with creative expression, increase self-awareness, and offer simple tools to support emotional wellbeing. 

In April, our theme of Let’s Imagine is inspired by Lunar negro con tatuaje (Black Moon with Tattoo) by Zilia Sánchez. To ensure the health and safety of everyone, registration is required for this in-person free program. Please register here.

Artful Meditation and Expression is part of the museum’s wellness initiative, Let Art Inspire, which includes a variety of programs that connect mind, body, and art in innovative ways.

Bodhi Simpson, LCPC, ATR, is an art therapist with a private practice in Waterville, Maine, called Conscious Art Therapy. She also is a teaching artist, an adjunct college instructor, and a workshop and retreat facilitator who incorporates creative expression and work with imagination, intuition, and metaphor into the healing process.
