What: Join Laura Mahon, our Art Therapy intern, for an inter-village discussion on one of the most notable paintings housed in Washington D.C., Renoir’s Luncheon of the Boating Party. Members from Foggy Bottom West End, Dupont Circle, Georgetown, and Palisades Villages are all welcome to join this online discussion. This will not be an art critique, but rather a discussion of emotional and personal responses to the painting.
Looking deeper into the painting, the discussion will entail a personal reflection on what features of the painting resonate the most with you. Which person do you relate to most? What do you feel is the main emotion portrayed in this painting?
Considering a magnificent painting, rich with history and story, join us on the 9th of December to share your thoughts on the painting and perhaps join in some collective art making in response to our discussion.
In advance of this meeting, you are welcome to visit the Phillips to view this masterpiece in person. It is also available to view online here.
Artmaking is not compulsory, however if you have access to art materials please have some available to you.
If you have any questions, please contact Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your DC Village office.
