When is the last time you stopped to really look at a work of art in a museum? Do you sometimes wish you could have a deeper and more engaging conversation around works of art with others? In this interactive workshop, we will focus on just a few works by one contemporary artist. You will learn how to stop and look slowly and share your thoughts and observations in an intergenerational group. The instructor will facilitate the conversation and provide contextual information throughout the workshop. You will be amazed by how much you can learn about a work of art when you look slowly and listen to what others notice. This is a great way to spend time with your friends, children, students, teachers, parents, neighbors, relatives and grandparents! RSVP here.


For this workshop, we will look at works by the iconic New Yorker and artist Faith Ringgold. The recommended minimum age is 10 (or 5th grade) since there will be discussions around social issues such as poverty and civil rights issues.
