An Introduction to Visual Narrative: An Art Gallery Workshop
October 29, 2022
This workshop introduces learners to a spectrum of ways of engaging with visual art in an art museum context. Through exercises of close looking, guided drawing, and reflection, learners will approach art via its basic utterances of colour, line, and pattern to develop an appreciation of forms of expression and witnessing. Through an exploration of narrative artwork, learners will also develop a relationship to visual story-telling and its value for professional and personal growth. The workshop combines practices of relational aesthetics and graphic medicine to enrich learners’ visual literacy, capacity for reflection, and appreciation for the relevance of visual art to the practice of medicine.
