LOCATION: Figge Art Museum
Join the conversation at this fun and informal session where we gather to talk about art. NO art background is necessary. The session is for everyone and all are welcome! Guests will be invited to look closely at two works of art in the collection, reflecting on what they see, think, and feel while connecting with the art. Conversations will be led by visual artist and art psychotherapist, Dana Keeton.
Participants will leave with supplies to continue their personal conversation through art-making. Free with membership or paid admission.
