Engaging with art develops the habits of mind that unlock our creativity. The complexity of a work of art requires close observation and the ambiguous nature of interpretation encourages us to generate a variety of ideas and consider multiple perspectives. The process of art encourages taking risks, learning from failure, and persisting in finding solutions to a challenge. Building these thinking dispositions makes us better learners in all subjects. The Philadelphia Museum of Art invites K-12 teachers to take up the creative challenge, reinvigorating ourselves as learners in order to inspire our students. We will explore these habits of mind through creative warm-ups, presentations by curators and invited scholars, gallery sessions, hands-on workshops, and off-site visits.
