Reaching Visual Art Students in the Classroom and Beyond

1 Presentation 0 Sections

Does your library serve student designers, artists, and other visual learners? If so, join us for this webinar on tailoring instruction and outreach for this population. Ellen Petraits will discuss concept mapping, a visual exercise she uses in library instruction at the Rhode Island School of Design ( RISD ) to help students identify and develop research topics in art and design courses. (*This is an encore of Ellen's ARLIS /NA 2010 Boston conference presentation.) Peter Blank promotes the artistic qualities of special collections materials to attract student artists to Stanford University’s Art and Architecture Library, but also participates in MFA studio critiques across campus to bring the library to the artists.
