Note that this is the abridged version (15 minutes) presented at BLC15; I have an hour version with almost 100 more hand-drawn slides.
While everyone is both a work of art and an artist, not
everyone thinks like one. What can the ways in which
famous artists lived their lives,as well as their creative processes, teach us? In this 15 minute keynote presented at Alan November's Building Learning Communities 2015, Amy
Burvall shares poignant takeaways from the lives of
Da Vinci and Michelangelo, the Impressionists, Toulouse-
Lautrec, Picasso, and Warhol.
Through anecdotes, quotes, and metaphorical imagery,
these apologues serve as digestible life lessons educators and leaders can embrace in their own
intellectual and creative lives and share with students.
