W hat is ODIP? ODIP (Observe, Describe, Interpret, Prove) is a strategy that the Columbus Museum of Art uses to promote conversation and deeper looking when engaging with art. Major recent U.S. Department of Education grants have provided evidence that looking at and talking about art can improve critical-thinking skills. The Columbus Museum of Art strives to provide engaging experiences with art in order to promote critical thinking and other 21st century skills such as creativity, collaboration and communication. ODIP Quick Guide This quick guide provides a reference for using ODIP in your classroom or at the museum. 1. (ODIP) OBSERVE Look hard. Look closely. What do you see? What information is there? 2.

What details could you give? 3. (ODIP) INTREPRET Imaginative leap. What is going on? What is the artist trying to say? What's the story? 4. (ODIP) PROVE Back up your interpretation.
