Out of the Shadows: Fostering Creativity and Teacher Education Programs is a culmination of five years of research into the role teachers have played in nurturing the world’s greatest artistic minds. The study focuses on the evolution of creativity in teaching practices and finds that many methods are as relevant in today’s classrooms as they were ten thousand years ago. The ancient Chinese used a painting style known as Moku-Chi to nurture the creativity of their children. They were encouraged to splash ink freely across rice paper, using broad, abandoned strokes to find inspiration. The Moku Expressionists Artists Exhibition consists of more than 10 artists who work in the Moku method of ink-splash technique. Artists will be available to discuss their works.
