Slow Art Day is a worldwide celebration of art that encourages people to look at art SLOWLY – and thereby experience art in a new way. You can see more about Slow Art Day and the mission behind it on our website: http://SlowArtDay.com.

As Slow Art Day approaches, you’ll hear from your host with more information, as well as instructions about what to do when you arrive for Slow Art Day.

Details:

Pauline will meet participants in the Gordon Darling Hall at 2pm.

2- 3pm: You will view some or all of the selected portraits in the galleries, on your own or with family/friends. This is a self-directed time to look closely and experience the art works while spending at least 10 minutes with each portrait. Pauline will move between the portraits to provide informal conversation. 

From 3-4pm in the Education Studio there will be a discussion to share your insights and experiences.  Tea/coffee provided

Please bring a notebook or sketchpad & a pencil for use in the galleries (no other writing/drawing materials permitted in galleries). Stools will be provided.
