The Arts and The Brain

"...there is no 'looking' without activation or creation; and there's no working with the hands without also directing the brain (Wilson, F.,1999).  Many areas of the brain and body are engaged to see and create art. In fact, the intricacies of creating a piece of visual art are mind-boggling, which leads us to the brain."

  1. I like this paper sculpture. How long did it take the kids to learn how to build these. Could you send me the lesson plan?
