When we think of art, we tend to think of art objects. As an artist and art teacher, I like to look at it differently, the way educational philosopher John Dewey saw it - Dewey believed that a work of art is "a refined and intensified form of experience." According to Dewey, "The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action." These ideas inspired me to create the Eighth Grade art unit called the i@pp.
