Continuing Education Course

SEM: 41


Integrated Learning through Visual Art


Empower your students to think critically and creatively through interdisciplinary hands-on art projects that explore cultural identity, social, and political points of view. In this course, learn how to integrate the arts with core curriculum, while incorporating multiple approaches such as writing and art-making. Begin the day by viewing and discussing the current exhibition in Otis’ Ben Maltz Art Gallery, 3 Solo Projects: Audrey Chan, Elana Mann, and Chan & Mann. Through their Chinese and Jewish identities, Chan & Mann address cultural identity and political discourse with their collaborative multidisciplinary artwork. Engage in rich discussions through Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS), a research-based teaching method that centers on open-ended yet highly-structured discussions of visual art. VTS, used by many museums and arts organizations nationally, significantly increases students' critical thinking, language and literacy skills. Course covers themes and questions regarding contemporary art; provides ways to enrich student learning; and builds student’s self-confidence, motivation, and self-discipline.

Prerequisite: None

First class materials: Note-taking materials, collage materials (for example: photos, string, wire, cloth, paint, markers, boxes, etc.)
