Visual Literacy Resources: Part 2 (Story)

By Ashley Weinard

Try one of the following strategies for discussing works of art in the classroom or museum gallery.

I Wonder

Nouns and Adjectives

Back to Back Drawings

Tableau Vivant

Teachers tell us these strategies are simple to remember, generate thoughtful discussion, and help students practice critical thinking skills.

You can use these questions with any work in the NCMALearn image gallery. Pick a work of art. Pick a strategy. Be surprised by what you and your students discover together.
