Cognition and Emotions in the Creative Process
Gnezda, Nicole M.
Art Education, v64 n1 p47-52 Jan 2011
Art teachers are most successful when they teach the whole child, with an awareness of the student inside as well as the work that is being produced outside. Therefore, when teaching students about their own creativity and that of artists they study, it is helpful to understand complex neurological and emotional operations that are active during creative processes. In this article the author explains these operations in order to help art teachers more fully understand what happens inside their students as they create, and she suggests ways teachers can effectively foster their students' creativity. (Contains 4 figures.)
