Description

Fostering Empathy through Art

Presented by: National Gallery of Art

Empathy is an important life skill for students in a diverse and ever-changing world. The ability to empathize can help them understand their own emotions and treat others with compassion. Led by art historian and empathy researcher Elif M. Gökçigdem, this workshop explores ways to use visual art and artmaking as means of strengthening understanding through listening, sharing, and reflecting without making judgements. At the end of the workshop, participants will have time to reflect and share their own ideas or best practices for empathy-building projects in the classroom.
