Drawing Conclusions is an interactive exploration of art designed to challenge and stretch your way of thinking beyond its conventional limits.
Created for graduate and postdoctoral learners, this free program builds skills in observation, critical analysis, and writing through examinations of visual art. By creating an environment for fresh thinking and creativity, Drawing Conclusions offers the unique opportunity to refresh your academic routine and inspire new modes of learning.
The program will:
- Teach you novel new ways to see, interpret, and reflect – and provide you with the tools for applying these skills to your own research, labs, and classrooms
- Help you discover and build confidence in your writing and scholarly voice
- Relieve some of the pressure of graduate studies by connecting you with peers and creating space for socialization and a creative break
Participants will meet for one 50-minute participatory online session with access to program materials in Avenue to Learn. The session will involve a guided viewing of works of art from the McMaster Museum of Art collection, facilitated dialogue led by museum education staff, and a series of independent writing activities that will help build creativity and expand your curiosity.
Enrol now – space is limited!
If you are not able to make this session, the McMaster Museum of Art is hosting a free, asynchronous program for grad students called Drawing Conclusions Continued, Thursdays from February 24 to March 31. Register now by emailing Teresa Gregorio at email@example.com.
