Young Artists Club: Do You See What I See?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This event is designed for YouthWise participants, ages 8 to 13. 

In this session, participants will explore the effects of context and personal experience on our interpretation of the world around us. Through the creation of two different art pieces, participants will learn about the role that perception plays in the way we approach and perform a task, and the way that we evaluate our own success. Understanding how each individual sees the world through a unique lens can increase an individual’s ability to gain a wider, kinder viewpoint of both our own capabilities as well as the strength of contributions from those around us, be they family, peers, colleagues, teachers or employers. Choosing to acknowledge and control your own lens both literally and figuratively expands your horizons! And then, as they say, the sky’s the limit!
