Chenery AuditoriumKalamazoo Kalamazoo
The Aesthetic Education (AE) Program functions within the collaborative partnership between EFA Teaching Artists and Aesthetic Education-trained classroom teachers. Working together, classroom teachers and Teaching Artist develop and implement inquiry-based, experimental units of study around specific works of art that students view. These units are designed to highlight the possible relationships between an artist's choices and the viewer's aesthetic response. Through participatory activities and reflections, students further develop their capacities for observation, analysis, questioning, and meaning making allowing them to deeply engage with and experience works of art while making connections to their personal lived experiences, the outside world, and beyond.
