Teaching art or teaching to think like an artist?

Art education to create thinkers where ideas are king!

· Art Science Links,Creativity Tools

This is such an important distinction between "teaching art" verses how to think like an artist to be curious and creative.

Consider the approach we can teach as artists:

To be comfortable with ambiguity

To play as a means to generate ideas

To explore trans disciplinary research as a means to serve our curiosity.

What is the purpose and value of Art education in the 21st Century?

While schools are focusing on the cultivation of creativity, at the same time, educators are struggling with ambiguity that comes with creativity in the classrooms. On the contrary, artists recognise that ambiguity is part of the process. Therefore, they take it, identify it and resolve it promptly.
