Authentic experience workshops

Authentic experience workshops

Are you looking for authentic experience ideas for your classroom? Dr Glen Skien, practicing artist, instructor and lecturer, has designed a series of workshops to suit visual art curriculum from senior  to middle school.

Material Thinking: The Poetics of Process provides the opportunity for visual art students to engage in a series of creative workshops underpinned by a form of  ‘material thinking’. Through a series of studio-based strategies that allow for unexpected poetic associations, material thinking provides a platform for the development of students conceptual thinking. The emphasis of any process driven methodology is a belief that the ‘making’ informs the conceptual, in contrast to the concept perpetually informing the process of making.
