High School Art Field Trip
The Pikes Peak Prep (PPP) high school art class visited the Gallery of Contemporary art at UCCS on Friday March 2nd to view the life work of proffessor Louis Cicitello.
Our PPP students enjoyed the exhibition and were lead in an exercise called Visual Thinking Strategies. VTS is a researched based teaching method that improves critical thinking and language skills through discussions of visual images. The students would look at an artwork for one minute without talking and then discuss what they thought was going on in the artwork.
