The Perfect Intersection: Art as a Pathway to Learn (and Do) Anything!
Featured Speaker: David Pyle from The Artists Magazine
NAEA National Convention
Saturday, March 16, 2019 | 10:30 – 11:50am
Learning in the visual arts leads inevitably to knowledge and skill-building across a host of disciplines and careers. From chemistry to physics to history to culture and beyond, art is the perfect entry point to bring context and meaning to how our world works. David Pyle started his career as a painter, a path that led to science and chemistry, and then to a position as the North American Director of Marketing for Winsor + Newton and Liquitex. From there, he moved to media as the publisher of The Artists Magazine, American Artist, Watercolor Artist, and more.
Join David for a lively discussion that starts with painting and drawing and then leads seamlessly to physics, chemistry, history (did they REALLY use mummies in making paint?)…and who knows where beyond that!? Loaded with lots of specific examples and time for compelling Q+A.
