Event description

Description

Through careful examination and discussion of original works of art at the National Gallery of Art, medical professionals and caregivers will practice and hone skills that support visual literacy, communication, and empathy. Working independently and in small groups in the galleries, participants will engage in exercises that explore the nuance and depth of meaning in works of art. Participants will also reflect on how they can apply these skills to their work to enhance relationships with care recipients, members of medical teams, and colleagues.

The program was co-developed and is run in partnership between the National Gallery of Art and the Georgetown Lombardi Arts and Humanities Program.

Participants are asked to commit to the four workshop dates if possible. Registering for the first April date guarantees enrollment in all four meetings. Please only register if you can attend all four sessions.
