IADEA hosted an interactive workshop in collaboration with Museum of Art and Photography on 19th and 24th August 2021. ‘Iconic Images’ was designed to investigate and question why we react to images in a certain way. This workshop helped us understand how to use photojournalism as a teaching tool in art classes. This session explored the many ways in which you can read and interpret an image. The focus of the workshop was on how we can teach important concepts like slow looking (or deep observation), critical thinking and communication through photography.
The participating teachers looked at select images from the MAP collection, and we’re guided through interactive exercises to discussed their learnings. They were also given a lesson plan and resources to use in their classroom.
