Artistic Ways of Knowing: How to Think Like an Artist Cover

Dr. Haroutounian has spent a lifetime working in the arts with gifted students in performance, as well as helping teachers to identify and develop talent. Artistic Ways of Knowing: How to Think Like an Artist is the result of her insights and experience, examining the perceptual and cognitive processes inherent in learning and interpretation. Understanding these processes allows instructors to develop creativity in the classroom, nurture talented students, and encourage everyone to "think like an artist.”

The book begins with perspectives of artistic and aesthetic knowing from artists and scholars across the fields of education. It then explores each element of artistic knowing and includes “Sparkler Experiences” that provide hands-on workshops to help students realize how to think and perceive in each art form: the visual arts, music, dance/movement, and theater/drama.

Artistic Ways of Knowing is a text for gifted and arts college coursework and a resource for professional development. But it is also of wider interest, as the goal is to provide readers with a more thorough understanding of how artists think and perform and how this kind of knowing expands in depth and breadth beyond cognitive/academic parameters. The ultimate goal is to encourage everyone to experience artistic “knowing.”

As befits a book about the arts, this book contains classic works of art in full color, as well as unique photographs that illustrate aspects of the creative process.

Think Like an Artist: Lessons for Experiencing the Artistic Creative Process Cover

In Think Like an Artist, Dr. Haroutounian offers teachers of the arts and enthusiastic classroom teachers a series of lessons to enhance artistic experiences for students. This book contains more than a dozen lessons in each of the four arts domains: the visual arts, music, dance/movement, and theater/drama. The lessons range from easy to moderate to challenging so that every student has a chance to experience the artistic process, no matter the level of talent or ability. Some of the lessons are linked with other arts domains or with academic areas, and many of them can be modified to include current topics of study in the classroom or within the broader academic curriculum. 

Each lesson includes objectives, materials needed, and the location and timeframe for the activity, as well as the interpretive arts elements that are used in the lesson. This is followed by clear, step-by-step instructions, sample questions to guide the activity, and tips for identifying students who show potential talent. The lessons end with extension activities that can allow students to pursue areas of interest further. Some lessons also include resources for delving deeper into the subjects inherent in the lesson. In addition, there is an extensive list of resources at the end of the book that provides recommended readings for almost any artistic topic.

This book is a valuable resource for homeschool co-op instructors who wish to give their students greater exposure to creative arts experiences.
