Artists in Process Teacher Resource Lesson 1 – Teaching with Concepts (resource)

How do we teach with a concept?

A concept is the overall theme of a body of work. You will explore different concepts and artists to come up with the theme and BIG question for your project.

Where do artists get ideas? Artists can turn to concepts — or themes — as one way to inspire ideas for their work. By exploring concepts in your own art, your peers’ art, and the works of art at the NCMA, you may discover ideas that inspire work for this project.
