    In this game, students sort objects by deciding if they are art (yes), are not art (no) or may be art (maybe so). Reasons must be given to support all decisions.
  • 11. Token Response
    This game challenges students to encounter important questions and distinctions about art and to share their responses. Through interactive play, students learn to evaluate art with different criteria, differentiate between preference and judgment and respect differences of opinion about art.
