This study describes the relationship of creating fluid art as a form of meditation. This type of art is relatively new [to include] within universities and within the art profession. Little research and writing exists at the doctoral level. Through the practice of the student, this study focuses on the process of creating fluid art as an experience to fit the method of meditation.

This study takes an academic and working artist approach as derived from documentation practices and creation of a body of work. The approach views the documentation of creating fluid art as a form of meditation as a practice that helps to better understand the student’s need for meditation practices through the creation of fluid art. This study reports on the student’s body of work created as a candidate for the Master of Fine Arts degree in Two Dimensional (2D) Studio Art.
