Slow Looking and Monet

Bring your notebook and come with me (virtually!) to look at the wonderful Monet show at the Art Institute of Chicago. I'll be walking viewers through the beautiful and tranquil last room of Monet in Chicago, which has seven water lily paintings in it. We'll take our time, looking slowly ourselves and thinking about Monet's slow looking, and then we'll do a writing exercise using details to look carefully up close. Whether you can go to the show in person or not, you'll feel you had an hour's quiet reflection in the presence of one of the show's great achievements. The event is free, but registration is required. See link below. Hope to see you there.
