The relationship between the arts and our minds and souls is the focus of a series of workshops this summer in Saint Columba House in Pointe-Saint-Charles. Under the guidance of Professor Norman Cornett, the participants will be exposed to art and music, write about their experiences and then engage in a dialogue with the artists themselves and each other.

The series starts on June 4th, with a field trip to McClure Gallery from noon to 2:00 pm. Together with artist and psychiatrist Jaswant Guzder, the focus of this workshop is art and mental health.

Educator, religious studies scholar, and art critic, Norman Cornett, Ph.D, publishes in Canadian and American journals. He “guest teaches” at universities throughout North America and Europe. He also leads workshops in French and English on ‘dialogic’ teaching, creative vision and artistic development. Further, Cornett authors and translates texts for museums, galleries, and individuals. He forms the subject of a National Film Board of Canada documentary directed by Alanis Obomsawin, Professor Norman Cornett: 'Since when do we divorce the right answer from an honest answer?'.

The second part of the workshop takes place on June 12th, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at Saint Columba House.
