CdM Art Educator John Gunnin recognized in national publication
Education Week wrote an article about the new curriculum for AP Art History and used John Gunnin's class at CdM as an example.
Read more about it in the Education Week article.
"Gunnin asked the students to dissect a contemporary piece made for the 500th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of America.... The assignment was to study the piece from political, visual, cultural, historical, societal, and economic angles."
Having students describe different parts and how those parts interact with each other to analyze and determine intent is something thoughtful teachers like John naturally do. Thanks to his knowledge and dedication, his students create amazing works of art. Every time I learn more about John's work at CdM I am impressed by his knowledge and passion for his students and for quality arts instruction.
