Episode 1 - Meditation, Mindfulness, & Relaxation with JP

Presenting OUTSIDE:INSIDE PRODUCTIONS with special thanks to Patrick Evans for editing, PAC Advisory Board member Raegan Kelly for guidance, and PAC Advisory Board member and alumnus Wendy Staggs for the hummingbird drawing. Since we are currently not able to provide in-person weekly multidisciplinary arts classes, PAC Teaching Artists and Guest Artists came together to create educational videos on art and mindfulness. Our goal is for these videos to play on the Division of Rehabilitative Programs - Television (DRP-TV) in all 35 California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Institutions! We submitted several new videos to CDCR for review and they are currently under consideration. We want to share them with all of you and hope this series offers you moments of calm, creativity, and connection. With special thanks to everyone at Arts in Corrections, a partnership of the Art Council and California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, for their awesome ongoing support!
