STEAM Teacher Seminar Series: Creating Exhibitions Using Design Thinking
January 28, 2023

High Museum of Art

Discover how the design-thinking process was used in the creation of the Children’s Garden at the Atlanta Botanical Garden and how it is used in exhibitions at the High Museum of Art. We’ll explore the five phases of design thinking—empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test—and discuss how each stage is important when creating an engaging exhibition. What topics could your students explore through the creation of an interactive exhibition experience?

Visual Literacy Workshop*
Grade Levels: K–12
How can we help our students make sense of the thousands of images they are bombarded with daily? How do we help them slow down, look closely, make inferences, and think critically about media, images, works of art, and the world around them? In this session, teachers will explore the concept of visual literacy—reading an image as a text. Participants will walk away with tips and techniques for creating and constructing meaning with their students in the classroom and learn how these techniques are applicable across all disciplines.

Teaching with Primary and Secondary Sources Workshop*
Grade Levels: 4–­12
This workshop takes a look at the High Museum’s permanent collection via object-based learning. Participants receive tips and techniques on how to use primary and secondary sources in their classrooms.
