"Museums can be intimidating places, especially for young people who lack familiarity with art history and its insider language. Today a number of museum educators are seeking to change that—and, in the process, reimagine how visitors interact with artwork.
"The blog of Art Museum Teaching, a partner organization of Educator Innovator, showcased a recent example with “Invisible Pedagogies.” A Madrid-based collective comprising educators from high schools, colleges, and art centers, Invisible Pedagogies seeks to transform the relationship between art and education. According to member Andrea de Pascual, invisible pedagogies are the nonexplicit “microdiscourses” that inform a pedagogy. Though hidden, these elements affect participants in a place or an experience."
