The way we recognize and understand our surroundings shares qualities of core features of art. Basic shapes, grouping, value and movement – the stimuli we use to make sense of our environment – are also launching points for visual art activities and for critical thinking that takes place in both seeing and organizing creative work.
This workshop approaches art from an oblique angle, looking at the mental constructs that may be used to apply elements and principles. In the process of finding associations among dissimilar things and orchestrating multiple aspects of art, skills in organization, coordination, analysis and integration are inconspicuously employed.LearningThruMindsEye
