Can the power of art change the way you do your job and see the world around you?

Countless law-enforcement officials, medical professionals and business executives across the country are learning to sharpen their observation, perception and communication skills from an unorthodox teacher. 

The Art of Perception,” is a groundbreaking, museum-based seminar using fine art analytical methods to strengthen general observation skills. Founder Amy Herman created the program over 12 years ago while working at the Frick Collection in New York City. She intended to enhance medical students’ observation skills with patients.  

The program’s popularity quickly boomed and soon after Herman contacted the New York City Police Department to pitch the same idea. Met with positive curiosity, she began teaching “The Art of Perception” to an array of police officers from industry veterans to rookies completing officer training.



Over the years, Herman has taught members of the FBI, CIA, Navy SEALs, the Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security. She will be speaking at the Dole Institute of Politics in Lawrence, Kansas on May 1 about her work and its impact.
