Creativity and divergent thinking are components of learning in childhood that often go unmeasured in favor of standardized subject assessments.

Impact: The Legacy Of Art Educator Jane Wilson, Shawna Hanel, Tricia Stackle

Art education is about developing visual literacy in a multi-cultural, multi-media world and empowering people to bring their analytic ideas into synthetic form. This process of creating teaches patience, endurance, respect for materials, and adds to our feeling of usefulness and security. Learning to form makes us understand all forming; this is the fundamental knowing. Jane Wilson, art educator at Bishop Kelly High School for thirty-three years, was committed to teaching visual literacy, creativity and skills for fundamental knowing. She taught thousands of students throughout her career, planting seeds in their lives, opening them to growth in self-awareness, self-expression, and ...
