Looking at art is about more than recognizing a canon of artists and styles. In fact, analyzing a work of art builds many of the same skills associated with critical thinking. The Benton’s Critical Looking workshop shows students how to tap their powers of observation and investigate a work of art through close looking and discussion. The workshop is designed to help prepare students for the UNIV Critical Reflection assignment and is offered all semester.
The workshop takes place in the Benton galleries and lasts approximately 50 minutes. Use the request form on our website to schedule a workshop. Contact Amanda Douberley, Assistant Curator/Academic Liaison, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-486-1705, for more information.
