Share In Someone Else’s Shoes: Art, Empathy, and the Written Word

Event Details

Help students discover what they have in common with others through writing activities that foster cognitive empathy and evaluation of perspective. Working in the galleries from original works of art that lend themselves to narrative interpretations, participants will be asked to step outside themselves and become one of the people or objects depicted. From their new point of view, teachers will imagine their role’s thoughts, feelings, and motivations based on what they see. Appropriate for all teachers, this workshop offers the opportunity to bolster students’ life skills while engaging in imaginative storytelling.
