Bevil and NEA blog

 

Bevil is a colleague at Wellesley College. My latest rant is to promote the re-definition of creativity…so that it does not mean “One who can draw an apple that looks like an apple.” I should mean “one who can imagine and produce a different apple than the ones already existing”. Creative thinking and teaching should be intertwined from infancy onward. The best work in any discipline is creative and beautiful and extraordinary. We can all learn to problem solve, collaborate, take risks, fail and recover, invent….the list is long. The visual arts provide a relatively cheap, accessable and personal path to this method of experiential learning.

More later!!!
