Why Art? Eleanor Davis
Publisher: Fantagraphics Books
We have a sense of empathy with works of art. I tell him I don't buy treats for myself. Creativity - Being able to think on your feet, approach tasks from different perspectives and think 'outside of the box' will distinguish your child from others. I tell him I have enough money for food, but nothing else. I tell him we buy what we need, and not more. For the students we work with in the classroom however, and for many other teachers who work directly with kids, this approach seems very natural. �You buy art supplies,” my son says. We often implicitly act as if we are moving our arms in response empathically to what we see in the painting. People have been using art to record events, express thoughts, ideas, and beliefs, since the very beginning. The science is in: research shows that art is just one way that you can train your brain to be more productive, positive, and creative. If we see gestures in a portrait, we actually almost simulate those gestures in our mind. In the toy aisle, which is inconveniently next to the bread aisle, I tell my 5-year-old son we are not getting a truck today. We often hear this question when we go to conferences, talk with school and university administrators, and even while presenting in Congress.
