Art, a tool for thinking.
November 27, 2012Posted by on
One of our teams has been exploring changes in the environment as a big idea in a class inquiry. They captured their own thinking on the unit and on art in the caption to the left. Art can and does allow us to make our thinking visible to explore thoughts, emotions and observations. Many of our classes have used art as a way to extend thinking in our programs.
We can embed art in various aspects of our curricular programs.
We also teach students to explore different media in their works such as watercolour to explore Tom Thomson’s works:
We teach them different aspects of art and art techniques such as warm and cool colours:

Art helps us to think.
Tell us what you think.
