Student Event Slow Looking Art Workshop

December 10, 2015, 6:00PM - 7:00PM

20 Ames Street, Bldg. E15
Cambridge, MA 02139

As the semester draws to a close, visit the List for a mindful, artful study break that aims to reduce stress by looking, discussing, and sketching. Take a moment for self-care and join in this session to spend time in the galleries with museum staff and students. The workshop starts with close observation of works in Rosa Barba: The Color Out of Space, then ends with guided drawing activities in the galleries. All materials for sketching are provided.

About the Workshops

Slow Looking Art Workshops are a series of study breaks at the List Visual Arts Center that harness the natural role of art to provoke reflection and contemplation. The List invites MIT students to slow down, observe and reflect among peers, and create drawings in a quiet environment. Using the art exhibitions on display in our galleries and across the Institute, an experienced facilitator and guest co-facilitator will lead students in a “slow looking” activity (group discussion of one carefully selected work of art) followed by guided sketching using quality art supplies. The 2015-2016 workshops are sponsored by MIT’s MindHandHeart Innovation Fund.
