Studio Habits of Mind Posters
Tap into your student’s critical thinking skills by incorporating these eight printables for visual artists. Created by Lois Hetland and her team of researchers at Harvard, the Studio Thinking (Studio Habits) framework touches upon best practices for art students and educators. These Habits mirror what real artists do to succeed. Teach them in any order at any level of instructional learning.
The 8 Studio Habits of Mind Posters tie in well with any art curriculum. These posters were designed with a glitter effect that would look great in any elementary or middle school setting.
