Visual Thinking Strategies

Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) uses art to teach visual literacy, thinking, and communication skills. By using VTS, we are developing your child’s confidence through experience, learning to use what they already know to figure out what they don’t.

Visual Thinking Strategies facilitators use these three key questions to guide children through the process with each piece of artwork:

  1. What’s going on in this picture?
  2. What do you see that makes you say that?
  3. What more can we find?

Use Visual Thinking Strategies with these pieces of art from our exhibition Joseph Opshinsky: Regional Color to help your child build their thinking and communicating skills. Then use these key questions to explore artwork in your own home.
