AENT’s ‘Studio Thinking’ 2021 Book Club

18 December, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Art Educators,

We are keen at AENT to learn more about ‘Critical Thinking’ strategies by offering to members one of two related books for our first ever Book club:

  • Studio Thinking From the Start (Primary & Middle Years focused)
  • Studio Thinking2 (Senior focused)

“The authors of Studio Thinking: The Real Benefits of Visual Art Education (2007) set out to systematically investigate what it is that visual arts teachers in arts-based high schools teach in their classes, and how these classes are organized. From there, the Studio Thinking framework was born and is now used in classrooms at all grade levels, all over the globe. In Studio Thinking 2: The Real Benefits of Visual Art Education (2013), the framework and its descriptions were expanded. To showcase how the framework has been adapted by teachers at the elementary and middle school levels, Studio Thinking from the Start: The K-8 Art Educator’s Handbook (2018) was written.” https://www.studiothinking.org/

Members who would like to participate in our ‘Studio Thinking’ Book club need to select which book they are going to read/apply/review and then reflect on at the upcoming 2021 Festival of Teaching!
