Teaching Creativity: Developing and Refining Student Ideas


Teaching Creativity: Developing and Refining Student Ideas

Wednesday, August 5 | 7-8pm ET  
FREE for NAEA Members; $49 for non-members

How do we guide students through the processes of developing and refining their own creative ideas? Join us as we explore ideas and approaches for guided inquiry and concept mapping that are scalable for beginner or advanced-level students. Dive into the sustained investigation portion of the AP Art and Design portfolio as a lens for considering ideation as an ongoing and reflective practice that happens throughout the entire process of creating a body of work, not only at the outset.
