Artistic Teacher Paints BrainWise Murals in Her Classroom

Posted On: March 6, 2015

 

A HOPE Online Academy classroom mentor used her considerable artistic skills to paint her interpretation of the 10 Wise Ways.  Her art as a teaching tool is a big hit with students and teachers.  The vivid pictures help students use their thinking skills and inspire them to create their own BrainWise drawings.  Here’s what students had to say:

The art is impressive, it helps to explain wizard and lizard brain a lot and the pictures explain it well. 

It’s cool because it gives you more of an image of what we are learning. 

It’s cool.  I never would have thought about that.  It’s fun to look at and helps remind me of BrainWise stuff.
