Created on March 25, 2012 by lightARTed

Inquiry is a core element in an IB classroom and over the years I have accumulated a list of essential questions teachers/students should ask about art.

    This is fantastic lightARTed! Have you seen the Tate's "Ways of Looking" Guide? It reminds me a lot of this resource. Glad you shared this!

    I love this! I'm thinking about paring it down a bit and creating some posters... then I can put up a list of questions for when we are sharing artwork, looking at a piece, or creating! There are some GREAT thoughtful questions in here! Thanks so much!

    Ms. Tuttle I love that idea... I hope you share what you do because I would be interested in that too!!!

    Milwaukee Art Museum...I have not seen it but will definitely check it out, thanks for the reference!!!

    Great reference! Having questions on deck is so important. I always notice that my less well thought out questions, especially during art appreciation times, tend to "give away" my preconceptions and affects the students' observation process.
