Demonstrating from experiences within our urban art classroom – participants will gain a deeper understanding of the practices of artists and the authentic experiences that can be created for learners within any classroom. Participants will engage in Visual Thinking Strategies to develop curiosity; videos and interviews with students will supplement the context. We will demonstrate the range of students we serve daily as well as how UDL supports their learning and engages them into content they might not initially choose to participate in. Participants will broaden their view of social justice as a way of inclusive education, negating the idea of students must be worthy of taking art or any content area, and find ways to expand their courses to include more students.
