Learning to Look and Looking to Learn: a Workshop on Visual Literacy

Visual Resources Association Foundation Regional Workshop
February 22, 2017

Hosted by the International Center of Photography in New York City

Sponsored by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and the Visual Resources Association Foundation

As our culture moves from an oral tradition to a visual one, strong visual literacy skills will be increasingly essential to interpreting the information around us. This two-part workshop (morning and afternoon) will provide participants with critical looking skills, as well as tools and techniques for enhancing the visual literacy of others. Part one of this workshop will be held at the International Center of Photography Museum, exploring visual literacy through objects in the exhibit “Perpetual Revolution: The Image and Social Change.”  The afternoon session will be hosted at the International Center of Photography School. Through a variety of interactive exercises, this session will explore more advanced visual literacy concepts, and examine how participants might apply their new skills to their own work and institutions. 

Morning: 10 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Lunch and Travel to ICP School: 12:00 p.m.-1:45 p.m.

Afternoon: 1:45-4:45 p.m. (30 minute coffee break)


Nicole Brown is the Multidisciplinary Instruction Librarian at NYU, where she teaches research workshops to a variety of user groups and works to expand and strengthen the teaching role of librarians.
