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 third and final session in a series asks participants what art do you put around you and why? This workshop utilizes the art in your home to challenge and hone your impressions of the familiar.

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