In this one-hour workshop, explore a single artwork through a series of guided activities, including close looking, writing, and drawing. Our intention is to offer a welcoming, calm space for individuals to experience and respond to art together. This session is part of the initiative Artful Practices for Well-Being, which offers ideas for connectedness and healing through art.
This February, Slow Looking focuses on Betye Saar’s Black Girl’s Window.
Each session will be led virtually through Zoom, a free video-conferencing software platform. Participants should have access to a computer, smart phone, or tablet with a camera and an Internet connection. Participants may also dial in using a phone line. Please bring several sheets of paper and a writing utensil.
Each session will have software-generated closed captions. There will be verbal descriptions for all images. A PDF of the presentation is available in advance upon request. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and live captioning is available for public programs upon request with two weeks’ advance notice. MoMA will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than two weeks’ notice. Please contact [email protected] or (212) 708-9781 to make a request for these accommodations.
