    There will also be discussion about the process and why quantitative information on impact is the way of the future for social services, machine learning and natural language, and what's in it for the user.

    Fordham University Spring Art Workshop for Veterans

    Instructor Steve Alpert leads Art-Making Workshops for veterans at Fordham University on Tuesday nights at 6:30pm beginning January 23. All artists make art for one basic reason; to learn the truth about themselves. 

    Artists access their own life experiences in order to make their own individual unique art. This intensive workshop is designed to support the emerging artists in learning to access the experiences of their lives and expressing themselves through their own unique art, be it painting, sculpture, drawing, etc.  The participants will bring the work they have made in the time between class meetings and put on display for others in the workshop. 

    The final class meeting will be an exhibition of work selected by the artists, representing their journey through the workshop in the previous months.
