Drawing the Visible and Invisible in Art and Science

Tyler's Art Education and Community Arts Practices Department is headed to the 2016 National Art Education Association Conference in Chicago! A number of professors and students will be presenting, including Dr. Andrea Kantrowitz.

Dr. Andrea Kantrowitz (Assistant Professor in Art Education) will present a lecture on "Drawing the Visible and Invisible in Art and Science,” on Friday, March 18 from 8-8:25 at the National Art Education Association Conference in Chicago, IL. The lecture will address how drawing can facilitate learning in art and science. The twin abilities to closely observe the visible world and visualize the invisible are essential to both domains. Artists and scientists draw to inquire into the world around them, to observe and gather information, to generate, explore and test new and established ideas, and to communicate their ideas and observations to others. Grounding teaching and learning on these professional practices brings the real world into the classroom. The presentation will share research and best teaching practices that demonstrate the effectiveness of drawing to learn in both domains.
