Studio Thinking 3: The Real Benefits of Visual Arts Education (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Studio Thinking 3 is a new edition of a now-classic text, a research-based account of teaching and learning in high school studio arts classes. It poses a framework that identifies eight habits of mind taught in visual arts and four studio structures by which they are taught. This edition includes new material about how the framework has been used since the original study, with new perspectives from artist-teachers who currently apply the Studio Thinking Framework in their own practice. It also reviews how contemporary organizations, educators, and researchers outside the arts have utilized the framework, highlighting its flexibility to inform teaching and learning. The authors have added a new chapter on assessment to introduce the practical and thoughtful ways that teachers are using Studio Thinking to assess and evaluate students' work, working processes, and thinking in the arts.The first edition of this bestseller was featured in The New York Times and The Boston Globe for its groundbreaking research on the positive effects of art education on student learning across the curriculum. Studio Thinking 3 will help advocates explain arts education to policymakers, support art teachers in developing and refining their teaching and assessment practices, and assist educators in other disciplines to learn from existing practices in arts education.
