Think Like an Artist: An introduction to the 8 Habits of Mind & How to Teach Them

Art education has the potential to teach a diverse set of skills that give students the ability to “see new patterns, how to learn from mistakes, and how to envision solutions” (Hetland, Winner, Veeneema, Sheridan, 2013). These are skills that students need in all aspects of their lives and can be taught in the art room. This presentation will focus on the 8 Habits of Mind, why they (along with art) are important to every student’s education, and how to make sure they are integrated into your lessons.
