SAN ANTONIO - participants of San Antonio legislations enforcement businesses spent Tuesday practising on the McNay art Museum.
The practising is referred to as the art of perception, and by means of works of artwork, members learn to increase their imaginative and prescient to consider outside the container.
"americans hear artwork and police work and they can't quite put it collectively," stated Amy Herman, founder of art of perception. "it's actually a natural connection. I bring law enforcement officials, legislation enforcement agents (and) intelligence officers to look at works of art as an entire new visible narrative."
Herman conducts the workshops for legislations enforcement companies throughout the country.
She said she asks officers to look at the photographs as they would a criminal offense scene.
"I inform them that I actually have a profound appreciate for what you do. i am not a law enforcement agent, but I'm going to help you do your job more with ease," Herman said.
"this is now not whatever thing you could invariably believe of as working towards," stated Mary Beth Fisk, CEO and executive director of the Ecumenical core. "but it surely is a practising in conversation, listening (and) statement, which is so critical should you're dealing with proof and cases."
Leticia Lopez has been a chaplain at the Bexar County Sheriff's workplace for about a yr. Her job is to aid officers at the department, different employees and their families.She attended Tuesday's workshop on the McNay paintings Museum.
"I not ever concept i might be art as part of my practising," Lopez mentioned. "however I bound am completely happy that this program exists. It helps us to talk greater. We need to be trained to be superior listeners, more suitable communicators.
Herman noted she just wrote a book titled "visual Intelligence." It was published in may.
