People working together often have challenges to see the viewpoint of the other person. This problem can lead to disagreements and disharmony in the workplace, social situations, or school. Working artistically with painting and drawing exercises designed to help participants see a viewpoint other than their own can help develop the capacity not only to see the other but to use these techniques in one’s own work.
Exercises will include making a three part painting (triptych) where one person creates the first panel in their own style and color, then moving on to their neighbor’s place to create the second panel using their neighbor’s style and color and so on for the third panel. The triptychs produced can be grouped by artist or by style. Discussion about what this process entailed, where was it challenging and what was learned about self and other will be part of the work.
Participants may participate in 5 optional studio sessions on Wednesday afternoons in March to continue their work if they wish.
