Seeing with the Possibility of Being Changed, Drawing as Meditation: A Hands-On Workshop
Time: April 13, 2022, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Location: 114 Bird Library; Peter Graham Scholarly Commons
Part of the Syracuse Symposium series.
Bradford C. Grant (Howard University)
Following his public lecture (April 12), Grant offers a more focused session on use of drawing as a means to self reflection. Whether you are an artist or haven’t drawn since elementary school, this hands-on workshop invites you to (re)discover drawing as an act of reflection and contemplative practice.
Architect and distinguished educator, Dr. Grant guides participants through a process of drawing to better see ourselves and the world around us, especially elements we take for granted and thus rarely examine closely. A past president of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, Grant makes powerful literal and figurative connections among contemplative practices, drawing as a means of better seeing, and social justice in architecture and design.
Space is limited; please contact Meghan Graham by March 30 for information.
