Sketch and De-stress
Take a moment to breathe, relax and explore the life and literature of the Victorian novelist and poet, Thomas Hardy.
Poole Museum invites you to explore artefacts in the calm of the Temporary Exhibition Gallery spaces using mindfulness. Through breathing, listening, observing and drawing.
Mindfulness is a valuable skill of self-care that can support our wellbeing. It helps us to connect with the present moment through our senses which, in turn, can deepen our appreciation of artefacts and works of art.
What to expect
During your visit to the exhibition collect a sketch and de-stress self-guided worksheet, art board and drawing pencil. You will be invited to take a closer look at the exhibition and objects. Draw and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Wessex. Listen to the recording of a scene from Hardy's novel. Draw what you see in your mind's eye as he paints the picture with words.
