Introduction

Creating art is about taking an idea and finding a way to express it to an audience. Throughout the creative process, the role of communication is key. Artists need to develop their ideas, describe their work, and give and get feedback.

To foster genuine communication, teachers:

  • Nurture artistic expression
  • Talk with and listen to students
  • Encourage student interaction and collaboration

 

Learning Goals

The goals of this workshop session are for you to:
  • Identify communication challenges associated with each arts discipline
  • Develop activities that nurture students’ communication skills at each stage in the artistic process – creating, performing, and responding
