Creativity Spark

January 12, 2016

Every day I spend a few moments explaining to one of my students why what they are doing in the art room is important.  Yes, I love art for the beautiful things people make for our visual enjoyment. There is more to it than just creating beautiful art.  Art Education isn’t just about learning how to make really cool things.  Art Education teaches about the creative process, risk taking, problem solving, communicating visually, and collaborating with others.

I was reading this article: We Need More Curious Dreamers, Tinkerers, and Makers over at Moving at the Speed of Creativity.  The video posted below was very inspiring.  I plan to show it to my Art students tomorrow.
