NAEA presents Interactive Webinar on Studio Habits: An Introduction to Studio Thinking

Kick-start your back-to-school learning! This important webinar introduces Studio Thinking and the eight studio habits of mind, which describe the thinking skills and attitudes that help students learn to think authentically as artists.
The Studio Thinking framework names what you already know happens in your art classroom, and grounds choice-based arts methods like TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior). Learn to guide your students to make decisions about what engages and challenges them personally. Walk away with tools to support authentic teaching of Studio Thinking—the skills and attitudes that help students learn and develop the internal lenses needed to think as artists.
