The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is working with seven different schools and over 1,000 different students to teach Visual Thinking Strategies in the Thinking Through Art program. And though at surface level it would seem that the program only helps kids to understand and think about visual art, in fact students experience a variety of learning outcomes, some of which are crucial for today’s technology and political landscape. What’s more, the proven ability of Visual Thinking Strategies curriculum to instill a variety of learning outcomes reminds us of something about the human brain vital to remember in a time when vocational training is back en vogue.
