    The Aesthetic Thinking Workshop provides an overview of the research that led to cognitive psychologist and VTS co-founder Abigail Housen’s stage model of aesthetic development and to the creation of VTS. Workshop participants examine aesthetic thinking and how the understanding of its development can inform education practice. Studies and assessments of the impact of VTS are discussed, as well as the tools used to capture this impact. There is no prerequisite for attending the Aesthetic Thinking Workshop. However, this three-day event is most appropriate for those with an understanding of VTS, as well as an ongoing VTS practice.
