What’s Your Story? Using Literacy and Art for Authentic Discovery
Wednesday, November 2 | 7–8pm ET
FREE for NAEA members; $49 for nonmembers

Looking for ways to help students to create, participate with, and respond to contemporary art and visual culture in more critical ways? Do you wonder how to support literacy in the art room though more than just writing prompts? Join us as we explore new media literacy—a discipline that features many elements analogous with art education. Come away with lessons, data, and techniques that will have your learners connecting their lived experiences with those of literary characters (from classics like Cinderella and new favorites like New Kid) and figures in popular culture through the avenue of digital comics, illustration, and more. Dive into exciting case study research (exploring Hamilton, Kehinde Wiley, and the Carters) and find ways you can successfully incorporate new media principles to support a different form of literacy in your teaching space.
