Introduction To Visual Art Blueprint Professional Development
The Office of the Arts and Special Projects provides citywide professional development in the implementation of the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. Central and regional professional development sessions are led by master teachers—outstanding public school arts teachers identified by the DOE—and teaching artists—professional artists from local cultural organizations. During these sessions, teachers explore the five Blueprint strands of arts education and learn strategies for lesson plan building and engaging children in the arts. Teachers participate in hands-on projects, allowing them to directly apply the lessons learned at training sessions to their classrooms.

FALL 2015 SHORT COURSE

Deadline to register is Friday, October 30, 2015.

Extended Viewing in an Art Museum: Implications for Teacher Planning and Practice

This reflective course offers visual arts teachers the opportunity to focus intently on one work of art. Choosing from the encyclopedic collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, each participant adopts one work of art for the duration of this short course. Time is spent working independently, exploring the work of art, generating sketches, observations, personal connections and questions.
Teachers examine how one work of art:

• becomes an integral part of art making instruction
• generates questions leading to inquiry-based research
• inspires reflective writing
• sharpens observational skills
• leads to making obvious and imaginative connections to other art objects

Participants work collegially sharing their written and illustrated reflections. Sessions 2 and 3 include time for teachers to report to group on classwork created based on the previous session. Binders are provided for teachers to collect this shared work, along with the resources created by the Office of Arts and Special Projects.

Instruction is provided by the Office of Arts and Special projects and Museum Educators working collaboratively with NYCDOE.

All instruction in this course aligns with:

• Strands 2, 3, and 4 in the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Visual Arts
• Blueprint component Integrating the Art Museum into Classroom Instruction
• Blueprint component Discussion and Questioning in the Art Class
• Domains 1, 3, and 4 of Framework for Teaching
• Common Core Learning Standards: Capacities of Students College/Career Ready (ELA)

This course is open to middle and high school teachers of visual arts and is limited to 25 participants.

Dates

November 13 from Noon to 3:00PM

Observing Interior and Exterior Art Environments through Drawing

Connections will be made between U.S. American Art and U.S. American History. Session 3 takes place on the neighboring High Line where teachers sketch its natural and built environment, as well as the views of lower Manhattan as seen from this exciting urban trail. Learning about the growth of the Whitney and the development of the High Line as they relate to the history of New York City, is integral to this course.

In each session teachers explore the role of drawing in guiding students to investigate works of art, and museum spaces, as well as their urban surroundings. Instruction is provided by the staff of the Whitney and the High Line working collaboratively with NYCDOE art educators to create a cohesive series.

Workshops align with the Chancellor’s goals to foster collaboration among teachers and deepen cycles of professional learning authentic to their discipline. Each three-part series addresses technique and mastery as well as Teacher Effectiveness – engaging students, designing clear curriculum and using assessment for instruction. Teachers produce a variety of artifacts to add to their professional portfolios. These artifacts include lesson plans developed by participant and peers, and samples of and protocols for imbedding a lesson within a unit, and a unit within a curriculum map. Participants receive complimentary resources for their classrooms. This free workshop series is relevant for both new and experienced visual arts teachers.
