Making Meaning: A Studio Approach to Teaching and Learning (Multiday Teacher Workshop)

July 31, 2017
Ryan Learning Center, Studio C
$175; 15 CPDUs

Three-Day Workshop: July 31, August 1, 2

What goes on in students’ minds when they make art? What thought processes are put in motion through material manipulation, design, and aesthetic engagement? Learn by doing in this three-day workshop and discover how art making promotes the application of prior knowledge, innovation, analysis, problem solving, evaluation, and other critical thinking skills. Explore a variety of media to reflect on making and learning. No special skills are required, only an open mind and a willingness to experiment.

This program will focus on the exhibition Cauleen Smith: Human_3.0 Reading List.

One graduate credit will be offered for this program for an additional $100. E-mail to learn more about this option.
