Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Nov 16, 2012
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Chris Willcox, Art and Art History, will present “I'm Ok, You're Ok: Postmodern Critique in a Studio Art Context.”  Too often, studio critiques degenerate into the “I like it, I don’t like it” binary. Good interpretations of Art should tell more about the artwork than they tell about the critic. The challenge for many professors of Art is to be able to help students build persuasive, objective arguments when interpreting or judging artworks. This session will highlight strategies for soliciting diverse interpretations from a number of viewers, helping to enrich and enliven the studio critique. All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
