How does an artist think?

Over the past year I have been trying to foster a culture of independent working skills, the ability to recover from mistakes and see mistakes from a different perspective and finally, to help students understand the importance of the developmental process of art making. In early Term 3 I interview a sample of students from Grade 1 – Grade 6 and asked them a variety of different questions relating to the topics mentioned above. The feedback and discussion was invaluable and already I’ve seen a shift in the students’ behaviour and how they view problem-solving, making ‘mistakes’ (or happy accidents as I like to call them) and being organised and independent. The poster in the photos below is a visual representation of the data I collected from the Grade 1 – Grade 6 think tank.
