Fredrickson Family Innovation Lab - Andrea Kantrowitz "Exploring Cognitive Psychology: Human Imagination, Art, and Perception" - Wednesday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m.
Time: 07:30 PM
It takes advantage of the ways in which human cognition is embodied and situated in relationship to the environments in which we find ourselves. Artist and educator Andrea Kantrowitz will share ideas and images from her recent book from MIT Press, Drawing Thought: How Drawing Helps Us Observe, Discover and Invent. In this book, Kantrowitz invites readers to use drawing to extend and reflect on their own thought processes. She interweaves illuminating hand-drawn images with text, integrating recent findings in cognitive psychology and neuroscience with accounts of her own artistic and teaching practices. Drawing is a tool for thought in anyone's hands; it is creativity in action.
