Pedagogy of Close Looking: An Evening at the Frick

The pedagogy of close looking has far reaching applications in the university classroom. Whether you consider yourself an expert or a novice in close looking activities, practicing your own close looking skills can reinvigorate and inspire new possibilities for close looking in our classrooms.

On February 22nd at 6:30pm, join the Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center and The Frick Collection for a special workshop on the pedagogy of close looking in the Frick’s galleries. Rika Burnham, Head of Education at the Frick, will lead us in a close looking exercise, followed by a discussion of the multidisciplinary possibilities of close looking pedagogy.

Please join us for this special evening at one of New York’s most treasured cultural institutions. This event is open to all members of the Graduate Center teaching community, but space is limited and you must register to reserve a spot.

And, please continue the conversation with the Teaching and Learning Center the following week for part two of this program, NYC as Classroom (Event II): Using Place-Based Assignments in Your Classroom: Wednesday, March 1 at 6:30pm in Graduate Center room 9207.

Note: The Frick Collection is located at 1 E. 70th Street. The program will begin at 6:30pm; participants are asked to arrive early to check their bags and locate the event in the galleries. At the main entrance, please give your name and tell security you are with the Graduate Center.
