Looking at Art and Making Meaning
Date: November 9th, 2022
Where: Huntington Arts Council (In-Person Only)
213 Main Street, Huntington, NY 11743
TIME: 4:30 pm–7:30 pm (space is limited)
Director, Hillwood Art Museum at Long Island University Professor. Barbara Applegate will discuss how many images do you view each day? How about in text messages? Or social media? How many of those images do you REALLY look at or consider deeply? Not all images require careful looking, but some do. In this workshop we will develop skill sets for the practice of careful looking. This workshop is an introduction to Visual Thinking Strategies. In principle and practice VTS promotes thoughtfully facilitated discussions of art to make education more engaging, inclusive, and equitable. These skills can be used with your students to promote careful looking, invigorate guided discussion, and increase students’ visual focus. VTS can be especially helpful in looking at works from a diverse global perspective. In our student-centered workshop we will view several works of art digitally and I will model the VTS practice. Participants should be ready to look carefully and share their findings throughout our session.
CTLE Credits – 3 (Visual Thinking Strategies)
COST: Workshops are FREE for teachers in school districts participating in the 2022-2023 JOURNEY Arts in Education program. For all others, the cost is $50 per workshop.
