Open Eyes, Open Minds: Building Observational Skills, Critical thinking and Cultural Competence through Art
Wednesday April 19th, 2017 at 1 PM until 3 PM
University of Victoria (Mearns Centre, McPherson Library, A025)
Join Legacy Art Galleries Educator, Gillian Booth, for an engaging and thought provoking opportunity to strengthen your cultural competence. In this two-hour workshop we will:
• Engage with art and visual imagery in an open-ended way
• Develop critical thinking and observational skills
• Work in a group and develop empathy
• Practice being curious in the face of ambiguity.
Participants will be invited to engage individually and communally in a variety of dynamic and thoughtful activities to begin a process of understanding how we see. We will foster critical thinking and a deep understanding of visual imagery, people and the world around us. This cross-disciplinary resource is open to faculty, sessional instructors and teaching assistants.
