Survey of LCI Practice

What is imaginative learning? Why is it important for my students to study works of art? In this introductory course, participants will explore the answers to these questions through an experiential workshop around Ghostcatching, a work of art choreographed and performed by Bill T. Jones in collaboration with digital artists Shelley Eshkar and Paul Kaiser, and through the Capacities for Imaginative Learning, which are a set of possible outcomes that may occur when aesthetic education is used in the study of an artwork. Aesthetic education is the basis of Lincoln Center Institute's approach to teaching and learning.
