Art21: Teaching and Learning with Contemporary Art

September 28, 20098:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.Cost: $30.00 (includes lunch)SB-CEU´S pending approval

Art:21 travels across the country and abroad to film contemporary artists, from painters and sculptors to photographers and film makers, in their own spaces and in their own words. The result is a rare opportunity for viewers to experience first-hand the complex artistic process – from inception to finished product – behind some of today’s most thought-provoking art.

This wonderful day of hands-on exploration will focus on using the Art21 Educators´ Guide. The following topics will be covered:

    How to-

  • use film and objects to teach big ideas
  • explore critical viewing
  • locate web and video resources
  • support the balance of skill building through partnering activities
  • work with big ideas
  • map out curriculum using the Art21

Cost of the workshop ($30) includes Educators Guide. The Guide includes Before Viewing and After Viewing questions as well as suggestions for hands-on activities. These suggestions are interdisciplinary and will support various disciplines including the Visual and Performing Arts, Language Arts, and Social Studies.
