As part of National Science Week, the John Curtin School of Medical Research’s Clear Vision Research group presents “The Art of Vision.”

Simply put, the event is an art class…but with a twist. As part of the class, you will be provided with goggles or a blindfold to mimic some of the most common visual disorders affecting our society today. How important is your vision to your every day life? How much do you need it to draw a simple sketch? How do visually impaired artists complete their stunning work? You can find out for yourself at The Art of Vision. Guiding you through will be a professional art teacher.

Following the class, there will be an informal panel discussion where everyone can ask questions to our panel consisting of vision researchers from the John Curtin School of Medical Research, and visually impaired members from our local community.

This will be a one day only event held at the ANU School of Art and Design at 3.00 pm on Saturday 17August.

Light snacks and beverages will be provided (alcohol free event). Open to anyone.

Space is limited to 50 people so get in quick. Please register online.
