Description: Visiting Professor of Art History at Holy Cross, museum educator, and scholar Annie Storr leads a series of virtual workshops, based on Holy Cross and other Massachusetts-based collections. The workshops will introduce Exercises for the Quiet Eye (EQE), a program that Storr developed to encourage patient reflection and an attempt to avoid the rush to understand, or determine a set interpretation for what we see. Through a series of exercises, specifically formatted for virtual participation, participants will find new ways of experiencing art.

The second session in the series of three focuses on connecting directly to the humanity in art, a skill that can extend beyond the painting. The workshops will include exercises meant to explore the difference but interplay between subjective and objective responses to the work of art.

Registration via ZOOM, approximately 1 hour long, limit 20 participants
