Toledo Museum of Art. Visual Literacy and Critical Thinking.
For this task, I watched the Toledo Museum of Art, Visual Literacy and Critical Thinking and Martin Scorsese on the Importance of Visual Literacy.
I believe that for me, the Toledo Museum of Art video got their main points across the best. I believe this because there were a lot of people used in the video including a Museum Educator and Director of other art museums. Through using people who work in the field, I believe in what they are trying to say. What I learnt from watching this video is that I need to stop when viewing an image and just take in all the information I can gather, as said by Brian Kennedy (2015) ‘ It’s only critical when you take the time to process the engagement (with the image.). I also learnt that images are becoming to complex not to ask for more information or evidence, to evaluate the image. In being visually literate, this can help me as a person understand interpretations of images as well as understand others interpretations of the same image.
Overall I believe that this video is very helpful for people who want to understand what being visual literacy is and how as a person can critically think about visual images. I would recommend to somebody to watch.
