Visual Art as Critical Thinking | Edutopia | images in context |

Engage your students' cognitive abilities through creative methods.

Visual arts (as well as other arts) are an excellent discipline to build and utilize critical thinking skills. I don't think we often give credit to the deep conceptual and interpretational thinking that goes into the creation of a piece of art, and this is often because art is treated as something separate from the core content areas.
