Asian Wing Deep Dive for Educators: Mindful Looking for Thoughtful Writing

Learn more about many of the ways of looking at and engaging with art practiced by people from some of the diverse cultures represented in the DIA’s new Robert and Katherine Jacobs Asian Wing.

Spend time with your fellow educators in facilitated deep looking exercises designed to encourage slow-paced, multisensory experiences with art and explore the idea of viewing and discussing art as a practice that can connect people across culture, place and time.

Then collaborate with DIA staff to develop writing resources to promote students’ close looking and encourage thoughtful responses to art.  You will leave with resources you can readily use, which may also be shared on the DIA’s website after the event.
