Teaching Critical Thinking through Art, 4.2: Going Deeper with Creative Questions

In this lesson demonstration video filmed at the National Gallery of Art, a group of teachers from District of Columbia Public Schools use two routines, Looking: 5 x 2 and Creative Questions, to explore a contemporary, abstract work of art, Synecdoche by Byron Kim. Former DC Public Schools teacher and current gallery teacher, Tondra Odom, partners with lead instructor Julie Carmean to facilitate the conversation. Participants connect to topics of race and representation.
