The Art of Care for Medical Professionals

September 14, 21, 28 at 10:00
October 5 at 10:00
(2 hours)
West Building Rotunda

Through careful examination and discussion of original works of art at the National Gallery of Art, medical professionals and caregivers will practice and hone skills that support visual literacy, communication, and empathy. Working independently and in small groups in the galleries, participants will engage in exercises that explore the nuance and depth of meaning in works of art. Participants will also reflect on how they can apply these skills to their work to enhance relationships with care recipients, members of medical teams, and colleagues.

For more information, please call Lorena Bradford, head of accessible programs, at (202) 842-6905, or email [email protected].

Participants are asked to commit to all four workshop sessions, if possible. Registering for the first date of the series guarantees enrollment in all four workshops.
