Come and experience how a single work of art can unleash the power and rigor of deeper learning!  Art engages students, yes, but it also has an untapped potential to take our students right into the heart of deeper learning experiences.  Join us and find out why art is the most underutilized tool for engaging students with rigorous and meaningful learning.

 When a work of art forms the initial object of study, it can act as a catalyst that pushes our students to use high levels of critical thinking skills, often across multiple disciplines.  Every step of the way leads students to go deeper with their learning and their conceptual understandings.

In this workshop, participants “start with art,” beginning with a work of nearby public art, Micro-Macro by Nobuho Nagasawa, and they experience first hand how such learning feels emotionally and academically.  Nagasawa’s art then leads directly to exploring a series of multi-disciplinary learning opportunities, including: minimalist poetry; ratios and proportions; a “make it with math” art creation experience; and a science lesson.  With every lesson, participants examine the unique deeper learning opportunities created by intertwining the study of Nagasawa’s art with the different disciplines.

Finally, we will examine the strategies and steps involved in designing these tasks.
