The Art of Seeing

John Gibson, senior lecturer, art department
John Gibson teaches a brief lesson on seeing, thinking and drawing. He moves from how we perceive differences among objects toward a strategy of recognizing commonalities. He illustrates this new way of seeing with an analysis of Table, Guitar and Bottle, by Pablo Picasso, which is in the permanent collection of the Smith College Museum of Art.
