Thinking Through Art at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
  What happens when we gather before a work of art? How do we view and understand it? This one-day seminar will introduce participants to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum's learner-centered approach to teaching visual art. Participants will develop and practice concrete strategies for facilitating discussions that make art accessible to all students and allow their ideas and perspectives to take center stage. From team building and mindfulness to critical thinking, we will reflect on the benefits of using the Visual Thinking Strategies approach to talking about art. Much of the seminar will be spent in the galleries of the Museum, learning with and through artworks in the collection. Teachers of all subjects and grade levels are encouraged to enroll. The seminar will be conducted at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. **If social distancing is still in effect, this will be a limited enrollment seminar. If the coronavirus makes it unsafe to travel to Boston, we will look to have this seminar online.
