The workshop offers training to parent volunteers interested in bringing art prints into elementary classrooms to promote visual literacy.
The workshop introduces attendees to the Socratic, or inquiry method of looking at art with children. Using open-ended questions to solicit a response from the viewer, the method facilitates the development of critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
For schools that do not have an active art print program, the workshop is an excellent opportunity for parents to gain the skills necessary to start one. Hands-on activities during the workshop will offer participants a chance to learn and practice the inquiry method.
