All Day Sophomore Priority Registration
Sophomore Priority Registration
8:30 AM - 8:30 PM Drawing=Thinking
Conceived in tandem with Cannot Be Described in Words: Drawing/Daring, at The Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, MA, the ‘exhibit’ will activate the gallery by transforming it into an interactive maker space for drawing and thinking. The programming is conceived as a response to The Art Complex Museum exhibit whose participants (four of whom are New England School of Art and Design faculty) share a sense of daring: exploring new approaches, scale and mediums that expand the definition of drawing and add to what that definition can be. 

Drawing = Thinking enhances the gallery as a site actuated by the correspondence of drawing to thinking and vice versa. Workshops and demos will give students and the general public and students the chance to experience the many ways that drawing and thinking overlap.  The results from these will contribute to a growing exhibit in the space of the gallery from November through January. 

All workshops will be during student activity period –on Tuesday or Thursday, from 1 – 2:30p.m. 
Pizza will be provided 
Check the gallery website for schedule of activities:

10:00 AM - 2:00 PM Sensory Disabilities Institute
This workshop is designed for faculty who are interested or who will be teaching students with sensory (vision and hearing) disabilities. This is an opportunity for faculty to better understand how these students learn and to prepare their courses to be fully accessible with the assistance of the Office of Disability Services well before courses begin. The advantage of this workshop is that faculty will have the skill set to effectively teach these students ahead of time.
