Mindful Study Break: Slow Looking Art Workshop at the List

Join MIT List Visual Arts Center staff for a mindful, artful workshop that aims to reduce stress by looking, discussing, and sketching. Take a moment for self-care and join in this study break to spend time in the galleries with museum staff and students. This workshop focuses on Mark Di Suvero's bold, colorful sculpture "Aesop's Fables, II" (2005). Look closely to untangle the active, industrial sculpture, then enjoy guided sketching in the space. All materials for sketching are provided.

About the Workshops

Slow Looking Art Workshops are a series of interventions at the List Visual Arts Center that harness the natural role of art to provoke reflection and contemplation. The List invites MIT students to slow down, observe and reflect among peers, and create drawings in a quiet environment. Using the art exhibitions on display in our galleries and across the Institute, an experienced facilitator and guest co-facilitator will lead students in a "slow looking" activity (group discussion of one carefully selected work of art) followed by guided sketching using quality art supplies.
