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

August 12, 2015
Ryan Education Center, Studio C
$175; 15 CPDUs

Three-Day Workshop: August 12, 13, 14

What goes on in students’ minds when they make art? What thought processes are put in motion through material manipulation, design, and aesthetic engagement? Get ready to learn by doing in this three-day workshop where you will discover and reflect on how art making promotes the application of prior knowledge, innovation, analysis, problem solving, evaluation, and other critical thinking skills. Participants will explore a variety of media (e.g., drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, digital, etc.) 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 Charles Ray: Sculpture, 1997 - 2014
