Using the framework established by Lincoln Center Institute for Aesthetic Education, this workshop will present an interactive demonstration of a process that develops capacities of imagination such as deep noticing, questioning, and making connections to ideas leading to understanding and making meaning. Participants will experience various genres of arts, and learn how this promotes the strengths of 2E students. Using great works of art from artists such as Chagall, Copland, and Graham as entry points to curriculum not only connect to historical periods of Russia in the early 20th century, and the pioneer movement, but helps students embody the experience, develop empathy, and make meaning in deeper ways. Participants will be able to create a lesson encompassing the components of the Lincoln Center Framework to develop the capacities of imagination, and practice the process of inquiry questioning. Through the experiential process, participants will come to understand the purpose of aesthetic education in the development of creative teaching and learning as well as in personal growth.
