In complement to his public lecture (April 12), Grant offers a focused session on use of drawing as a means to self reflection. Whether you are an artist or haven’t drawn since elementary school, this hands-on workshop invites you to (re)discover drawing as an act of reflection and contemplative practice.

Architect and distinguished educator, Dr. Grant guides participants through a process of drawing to better see ourselves and the world around us, especially elements we take for granted and thus rarely examine closely. A past president of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, Grant makes powerful literal and figurative connections among contemplative practices, drawing as a means of better seeing, and social justice in architecture and design.

Space is limited; please contact Meghan Graham by March 30 for information.

This event is part of Syracuse Symposium’s year-long series on “Conventions.”
