VAST 2017 (Visual Arts as Sources for Teaching)
Driving Creativity: Developing Original Ideas

July 10–14
Location: South Terrace Conference Rooms A & B

9:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Paid tickets required: $260 ($210 members)

When two worlds intersect, the meeting and merging of different ideas can lead to new insights and creations. By drawing inspiration from points-of-view other than our own, it can push us past our own boundaries. Art is the convergence of many of these intersections and perspectives and it can also inspire our minds to think divergently.

The Museum invites K–12 teachers to use art as the spark to break us out of our everyday thought patterns, connect the unexpected, and explore myriad points-of-view. By practicing these skills, we can train our minds to develop original ideas.

Please tell your friends—we encourage teams from the same school to attend together.
