Visit the List for our monthly 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 considering art with museum staff and students. The workshop starts with close looking at Sol LeWitt’s monuemtal installation Bars of Color within Squares (MIT), and ends with a guided drawing activity. 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.
