M+ Lecture series: From Sharing Information to Sharing Ways of Thinking
Why We Recommend it
Museum education stalwart Philip Yenawine will hold forth on how art can be used to engage the critical thinking skills of students, and describe the visual thinking strategies that can be applied to this end.
Widely employed in the field of education, Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is an approach that uses art to develop critical thinking, communication and visual literacy skills in viewers.
In this talk, Yenawine will describe how these strategies can be used for primary and secondary students, across disciplines, and in ways that foster strong communication skills.
Yenawine has authored books on the subject, and has worked in museum education for over forty years, ten years of which were spent as Director of Education at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The talk begins at 9.30am and runs for an hour and a half.
