Artful Thinking - stronger thinking and learning through the power of art
Works of art are good things to think about. This simple premise underlies Artful Thinking, a program that helps teachers regularly use works of art in their curriculum in ways that strengthen student thinking and learning. Used by classroom teachers across all grade levels, as well as art specialists, the program focuses on looking at and interpreting art, rather than making art. Its goals are twofold: To help teachers create rich connections between works of art and topics they are teaching and to use the power of art as a force for developing students’ thinking dispositions.
