Generating Ideas for Art

2 PD Hours

  • 1 Understand ideation as a critical artmaking process that goes much deeper than just brainstorming.

  • 2 Learn practical strategies for ideation that you can incorporate into your art classroom right away.

  • 3 Explore the connection between ideation and artistic voice - and how to foster them both.

Great artwork often begins with great ideas, but how can you help your students develop higher-caliber thinking skills about their work? In this PRO Learning Pack, veteran teacher and arts administrator Nick Gehl walks you through an exciting art development process: ideation.

You will begin by defining the ideation process and learning about the optimum classroom environment needed to encourage it. Then, you will examine a multitude of classroom-tested ways to encourage quality ideation. Finally, you will learn how to evaluate ideas and move toward their application through thumbnails and composition sketches.
