The nineteenth-century artist John Ruskin encouraged all his students to draw, even if they weren’t especially good at it. “The greatest thing a human being ever does in this world is to SEE something, and tell what [they] saw in a plain way.” For most of us, such clarity of focus has become increasingly rare. There is so much to see, and it passes by so fast, on the tiny screens of our digital cameras and the larger ones of our personal computers, on TVs and videos and flashing billboards, that simply looking has become a luxury. This two-hour workshop will give us time to do just that – exploring the glories of the Worcester Art Museum at our own slow pace, looking, wandering, and making notes – and then gathering to write and share what we’ve discovered. No prerequisite. All abilities welcome.
