To believe one’s eyes the discovery of visual  perception and advancement of critical  thinking.

Every child, every youth, and every adult has the right to see their own “picture.” The “correct” one does not exist. Discussions based upon different perceptions lead to new ideas - for oneself and for the community at large. The outcome becomes a multifaceted world of creative thinking and enhanced language skills.

Participants of this course will receive a practical as well as a theoretical introduction to „Visual Thinking Strategies“ a method that uses art to teach critical thinking skills, visual literacy and communication skills.

Students will learn to facilitate open-ended discussions about sequenced works of art. They will employ a student-centered approach that uses developmentally-based questions and a supportive method of responding to student participation. A wrong answer does not exist. It all depends on the manner in which people look, and how they are stamped by culture, religion and personal experience. Listening, paraphrasing and linking of different viewpoints will be a focus of the training as well.

At the end of the course participants will understand the elements and method of Visual Thinking Strategies. They will also be able to facilitate simple open-ended discussions on their own.
