Describe general characteristics in artwork from a variety of cultures, which might also include personal identity and heritage. Compare content in artworks for various purposes such as the role art plays in reflecting life, expressing emotions, telling stories, or documenting history and traditions. Analyze personal artwork in order to create a written response such as an artist's statement reflecting intent. Use responses to artwork critiques to make decisions about future project-based projects for the classroom that will impact the community. Investigate connections of visual art concepts to other disciplines.
The participants will learn how to help their students:
Develop language and knowledge to accurately and respectfully describe how people (including themselves) are both similar to and different from each other and others in their identity groups (Diversity)
Respectfully express curiosity about the history and lived experiences of others and will exchange ideas and beliefs in an open-minded way (Diversity)
Respond to diversity by building empathy, respect, understanding and connection (Diversity)
Exam diversity in social, cultural, political and historical contexts rather than in ways that are superficial and oversimplified (Diversity)
