The Power of Observation

Bonnie Pitman
Director of Art-Brain Innovations

The art of observation begins with immersing ourselves in attending to life.  Explore the differences of seeing, looking and observing.  Observation requires us to look and listen deeply to develop an understanding of the impressions we collect. Learning to observe people, places and activities in the world makes us better storytellers, communicators, physicians, writers, and artists. 

Based on works of art in the Dallas Museum of Art and with classes she teaches with medical students and physicians this session will develop skills for attending, connecting, analyzing, interpreting and creating. This program will also engage participants in learning about art history, the creative process and cultures of the worlds that are selected from the DMA galleries.
