Learning to Look


Created by the Hood Museum of Art, Learning to Look is an approach designed to help viewers look carefully and think critically about any work of art.

The Method

The resources provided here include a full-screen image of a work from the selected exhibition, along with guidelines to help you lead a discussion about it with your students. They will introduce you and your students to the five steps involved in exploring a work of art: careful observation, analysis, research, interpretation, and critical assessment and response.

Workshops for teachers on the Learning to Look technique are offered periodically through the Hood Museum of Art.
