Drawing Conclusions: Creativity for graduate students is a personal and professional development series for graduate students, developed by the McMaster Museum of Art. No previous art experience necessary!
Build skills in observation, description, and critical writing through examinations of visual art and writing exercises.Relieve some of the pressure of graduate school by connecting with other grad students, reducing isolation and building confidence while learning novel ways to see, judge, and reflect.
During four interactive online sessions, participants will view works of art together and be prompted through various writing activities designed to build skills in observation, description, and critical writing. Share as much or as little as you are comfortable with during live sessions.
August 10: Observation and Inventory
August 11: Descriptive and Comparative Writing
August 12: Judgment and Critical Writing
August 13: Reflection and Philosophical Thinking
Registration required. Participation is limited to 10 students per group. A group meets four times for 1.5 hours, starting on a Monday and ending on Thursday.
Who should attend?
Drawing Conclusions is suitable for new and returning graduate students from any program or discipline, as well as postdoctoral fellows.
