My favorite way to teach art is through thinking, feeling and doing. To create a project with all these components in mind I developed “Nini’s Tree”. There are many ways to creating art, but if one can gain “emotional benefits” from creating a work of art, one has an opportunity to process a life’s experience thoroughly. This book includes one of those projects I label as “Mindful Art” “Mindful Art” is an art project where the student has to think, feel and do something with the information they have. The result has an everlasting effect on the creator. It will make students aware of all the things we encounter to create:
• your emotions and memories. How you feel about some things.
• your knowledge about things.
• your information you have. (Observation and recording.)
