Visual Thinking Strategies: using art to deepen learning across school disciplines book coverDuring this day of professional development for school library media specialists, public librarians, art teachers, and museum professionals, Philip Yenawine will offer an interactive demonstration and analysis of Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS)—a term that refers to a particular way of conversing about art, a specific curriculum, and a set of lifelong skills. There will be opportunities for questions, book sales and signing.

Philip Yenawine is the co-creator of VTS. He began investigating what people gain from looking at art while Director of Education at the Museum of Modern Art. Yenawine is the author of six books about art for children, How to Look at Modern Art, and the book that will be featured at this workshop, Visual Thinking Strategies: Using Art to Deepen Thinking Across School Disciplines.

Due to the Federal Government shut-down, this workshop will now take place at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G Street, NW. THIS LOCATION IS ACROSS FROM THE SMITHSONIAN NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY.
