Bringing art into the general education classroom can make students better observers, thinkers, and doers in all their subjects. Our course in this subject area helps educators discover various routes to access artthrough reproductions, the Internet, and museumsand for various purposesto introduce diverse cultures and points-of-view, to enhance language arts, social studies, and math curricula, to animate the past and present, and to instigate creative writing and art-making. Educators will become adept at asking basic questions of artfrom how is it made?' to what does it say?'all of which will help their students to improve observation, inference, and interpretation skills. Featured in the course is classroom footage of the presenter modeling the surprisingly simple and rewarding tasks of looking at art with students and engaging with them in hands-on projects that reinforce lessons.
