Art 1 –
“The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind – creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers and meaning makers. These people…will now reap society’s richest rewards and share its greatest joys.” - Daniel H. Pink, A Whole New Mind
In art we naturally discover and celebrate that there can be multiple solutions to a single problemâ€Ś
That answers are not always right or wrong, nor are they always found in the back of the textbook.
â€Śthat diversity is beautiful. and
â€Śmakes us stronger and more compelling.
â€Śthat creativity is a skill that can be practiced and strengthened
â€Śmaking Connections extends learning
…and synthesis expands the capacity of a single idea.
Art 1 is for Everyone Risk taking, creative thinking and problem solving, identifying divergent right answers to a single question, generally thinking outside the box and outside the paradigm, and growing an innate commitment to excellence are core curriculum for todayâ€™s youth. They are innate to a quality visual arts class. This is why I love teaching Art 1.
Intervention Needed: a quality education inclusive of visual arts.
