Abstract 

This paper explores the use of an art form in a post-graduate course on organizational change. It describes the use of visual art in teaching organizational change, and assesses its efficacy in terms of how it developed students’ understanding of organizational change as well as how it developed the students’ ideas about their own learning. The three students in the class all reported that these effects could indeed be observed. The paper is presented as a modest case study that confirms the current literature affirming the positive role of the arts in subject understanding and in general educational development.
