The Engage! Teens, Art & Civic Participation webinar series will introduce a program model that targets young adults, using visual art as a springboard to civic engagement. Originally piloted in ten Illinois libraries in 2010, Engage! Teens, Art & Civic Participation is an activity- and discussion-based program model featuring a selection of curated and compelling images of American art.
During these three free webinars, participants will:
- Hear from librarians who participated in the Engage! pilot program, who will share what worked and what didn’lt with teens.
- Be introduced to a free PDF guide to the Engage! model, featuring detailed instructions on how to get started.
- Learn how to formulate effective “looking questions” that will elicit participation and engagement with art and thematic content.
- Learn how to select images that will illuminate relevant civic participation issues for teen discussion and learning.
In this first session, learn more about this program model for young adults that uses visual art as a springboard to civic engagement.
