Art and Self Discovery The Call and Response of Making Art

Cindy A. Taylor, Georgia State University


This arts-based research study grows out of the examination of a lifelong practice of art making I dub Call and Response. Gaining insight through the research and exploration of doodling, automatic drawing and other surrealist techniques and ideas about perception,

I not only better understood the development of my creative processes and strengthened my artistic voice, but learned how these practices could be beneficial in teaching and learning the visual arts in the k-12 classroom.
