Ideation and Sustained Investigation

2 PD Hours

  • 1 Select advanced ideation techniques for the classroom designed to improve individual visual expression.

  • 2 Learn to combine technical and conceptual development, helping students strengthen their AP portfolios.

  • 3 Plan opportunities for students to reflect on their sustained investigations through classroom and individual critiques.

Art teachers who facilitate advanced placement courses know that guiding students through the development of their sustained investigation can be the most challenging aspect of the course. Join Janani Nathan as she demystifies the process by revealing how she pairs technique development with in-depth ideation.
