Zombie Artists: How Teaching about Brains Makes Better Artists

Saturday October 21, 1-1:50pm in

Marie Elcin and Cindy Hodgson

This session addresses the challenges faced by the middle school crisis of pseudo-naturalism as they realize that what they draw doesn’t match what they see. We propose that by learning about how their eyes and brains work, and about how their brains are changing during this period of early adolescence, students become more willing to take creative risks. We’ll share info about brain structures and networking and offer hands-on activities you can take back to the middle school art room.
