    ThinkTank 1 Notes

    It began with a brainstorming session between Jim Elniski, Director of first-Year programs at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Mary Stewart, head of the core program at Florida State University. We decided to bring together Foundations faculty and administrators from around the country for an intensive discussion of problems and possible solutions.

    As an experimental format, we deliberately limited the size to twenty-five participants. The participants found the Thinktank format substantial and inspiring, and we concluded with a discussion of future Thinktank possibilities, including a session in 2007 specifically devoted to critiques, critical thinking, and critical theory.

    I hope we can generate a whole series of “Thinktanks” around the country during 2008, the year between conferences. You can download the notes on the home page of the blog.

    Welcome

    ThinkTank began in 2006 as an invitation-only event at the Art Institute of Chicago to discuss the current state of foundation (or core) art programs. About 30 educators and administrators attended this event and generated content around curriculum, teaching and content.

    ThinkTank II will be held May 22-24, 2007 at the University of Georgia, Athens. Facilitated by Mary Stewart, Florida State University and Richard Siegesmund, University of Georgia, the invitation-only event will focus on Teaching the 3 C's: Critical Theory, Critical Thinking, and Critique Strategies.

    The goal of the meeting is to develop clear curriculum modifications that affect the content of both foundations programs and graduate seminars on teaching in visual art. It will address the serious need for better training of MFA candidates in strategies for teaching critical theory, critical thinking, and critique in the visual art/design classroom.

    In addition, it will also address the preparation of high school art students who wish to pursue undergraduate study in art, as well as consideration for the teaching of art appreciation to non-art majors.

    For more information, please contact Mary Stewart at mstewart3@mailer.fsu.edu or Richard Siegesmund at rsieg@uga.edu.Think_tank_logo_4
