The Art of Learning

 “Principles for the Development of a Complete Mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses – especially learn how to see.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Today art programs are the first to be cut from the program when money gets low.  And yet, we have known for years, in fact, even before the scientists officially came to such conclusions – that art is a mind-building endeavor!

Da Vinci was always experimenting, inventing, applying mathematics……….to his art!  Art is a whole brain activity.  See this post on the left and right cortical skills.

Our state has a wonderful activity called Art Prize located in Grand Rapids, Michigan for two weeks every fall.  I am heading there today to appreciate the talents, the labor and yes the fabulous creativity of artists from around the world.  The exhibits are located both inside and out throughout the town center and are voted on by the visitors.

Why don’t you get out and make some art or enjoy it?  For you parents, get out and gather some of the fall leaves and press them in wax paper.  For those without kids get to a museum or an art studio such as a clay works or painting.  Oh there are so so many more possibilities, but you can use your amazing brilliantly creative brain to cook up just the perfect artistic plan for your weekend!
