THINKING ROUTINE THURSDAY
Presented by: National Museum of Women in the Arts
These age-specific tours, led by museum educators at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, employ Harvard Project Zero's Thinking Routines. Participants look closely at three to five developmentally appropriate artworks, contribute respectfully to open-ended discussions, pose questions, respond in writing, and make connections between visual art and their world. These tours are designed to improve students’ vocabulary; observation and inference skills; and their ability to identify various artistic techniques and media.
Dates: 9/21/17, 10/5/17, 10/19/17, 11/2/17, 11/16/17, 12/7/17, 12/21/17, 1/4/18, 1/18/18 (Fall Lottery); 2/1/18, 2/15/18, 3/1/18, 3/15/18, (Winter Lottery); 4/5/18, 4/12/18, 4/19/18, 5/3/18, 5/17/18, 6/7/18 and 6/21/18 (Spring Lottery)
