Beyond an Artist: Cultivating Critique Skills in Young Children

Saturday, November 11
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: 201 A

Launched in 2014, the National Core Arts Standards highlighted the need to address arts literacy beyond art making. Divided into four components, Creating, Performing/Presenting/Producing, Responding, and Connecting, the NCAS outlined essential outcomes of arts education for students beginning with kindergarten. Although many teachers are familiar with art-making, few focus on developing critique skills among their students. This situation is critical for young gifted art students who need to be introduced to art as a language at a young age. In this session, we provide examples of developmentally appropriate critique skills that are effective with young children.
