Design Education Topic of Davis Retreat for Art Supervisors

Art Supervisors from across the country were introduced to the concepts of Design Thinking at the Davis Retreat for Art Supervisors in October 2008 held in Palo Alto at Stanford University's d.school (design school) and IDEO, one of the top design firms in the world (right).

Among the participants were Debora Reeves, Executive Director of the National Art Education Association (left) and John Wilson, Executive Director of the National Education Association (on right).

David Kelley, founder of IDEO and the d.school welcomed participants and introduced them to the ideas upon which IDEO and the d.school were founded. Over the next two days everyone participated in a "Deep Dive" to experience the design thinking process first-hand. They learned about the design thinking process including ideation, inquiry, empathy, visualization, and prototyping (far right)

This retreat coincided with the release of Davis' special issue of School Arts magazine on Design Matters. Click on the heading above or go to www.davisart.com for more information about School Arts and Davis Publishing.
