Viggo Mortensen on The Social Power of Art and Staying Childlike To Be Creative

Viggo Mortensen on The Social Power of Art and Staying Childlike To Be Creative | The importance of creativity in relation to achevment. | Scoop.it

Like children, many creators have multiple creative interests, and may keep a childlike mindset to become multitalented artists.

 

“The function of artists is to keep people childlike in a positive way. To keep open to the world.”

Viggo Mortensen continues, “Apart from traveling to different countries, to different communities, to different parts of your city, I think that art is one of the greatest anti-war and anti-poverty weapons.”

Edward Norton: “It’s about balance”

Edward Norton: “It’s about balance” | The importance of creativity in relation to achevment. | Scoop.it

"It is also about...finding the balance between the very cerebral part of your brain and the much more impulsive creativity that can come from chaos. So for me it is very much about that balance. The cerebral part of acting and the perfectionism can be exhausting, but the spontaneity can be very joyful."

Hilary Frambes's curator insight, May 11, 2013 11:09 AM

"Even my more challenged students -- and I have about five of them -- the engagement is like 180 degrees. It’s like a different child," said third-grade teacher Beverly Grotts.

The program, called "Artful Connections with Math," was developed by the Pasadena Unified School District and the Armory Center for the Arts. Funded by a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, it pairs classroom teachers like Grotts with "teaching artists"  who show them how to use hands-on, visual art projects to teach math concepts."
