We will practice taking our time in looking at art in order to overcome our tendency to rush. Lessons from the worlds of yoga and meditation will guide us and help develop an open and contemplative mind. Learners will receive blank perception logs to use for in-class exercises and also on their own. The goal is to share an authentic experience of the usefulness of art as a tool to manage stressful mind states in your everyday life.

You will:

  • Slow down your eye, calm the mind, to nourish the spirit.
  • Learn about the links between time, mind states, and perceptive abilities.
  • Learn a definition for “Impressionism” and the discover why it’s important to unmask the illusion of closure.
  • Find out how to use visual perception logs.
  • Practice taking time with looking to see all that can emerge.
  • Have fun with French by exploring the phrase lâcher prise, to understand that sometimes getting more also means letting go.

Your educator Pamela Warner earned her Ph.D. in art history from the University of Delaware, where she specialized in 19th-century French art and art criticism.  She taught art history at the University of Massachusetts and the University of Rhode Island, before returning to Paris full-time.  In 2014, Pamela created a yoga and meditation studio in Paris, where she explores the links between practice and perception, the eye and the mind, thoughts and expression. For Muse+Connect, she draws on both her classroom teaching and museum education experiences as a Paris Muse guide.
