Art of Healing




“Art of Healing” can be interpreted very literally. When learners think about being healed, I believe their first thoughts would be a hospital. You go to a hospital for help through medicine or surgery. I want learners to think more about healing through fulfillment or sustenance. This can also be interpreted very literally through food and water. I would also want learners to think about what fulfills them not just to live or survive but what fulfills them through their mind or spirit. Learners will be shown work based around the idea and discuss their own ideas. A piece of art will be created by each learner in their chosen media conveying their interpretation of the question, what fulfills you, whether literally or more symbolically.
