Arts Toolkit: Visual Arts Video Clips

For the Teacher: Introduction to Responding to Visual Art


Former KET humanities instructor Elizabeth Jewell introduces the Responding to Visual Art DVD and briefly discusses how the videos can help students understand and evaluate their experience of viewing a work of art. The segments cover the elements of art and principles of design and feature informative interviews with a museum curator, an art critic, and several artists.

Suggested Uses:

  • Preview to get a basic idea about the DVD contents.
  • Use to learn how you might use the other segments, alone or in combination, to supplement lessons.
  • Use as an overview to begin units that cover the elements of art, principles of design, or art appreciation in general.
