Art and the Brain


with George Conesa

Calendar Oct 12, 2022 at 1:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Art is definitional of what it is to be human. Our ability to appreciate or make art hinges on personal characteristics and cultural preferences. This course explores some important perceptual and cognitive foundations that give rise to aesthetic preferences. For example, are there any differences in: crafting compositions in left- versus right handers; how do children of various ages represent “reality”; or what does each cerebral hemisphere “see” and “feel”?

  • Loop (T - Telecoil) hearing assistance is available.

Instructor: George Conesa

George Conesa’s research, writing, and teaching interests lie in the areas of cognition and art. He has been a teacher/researcher since 1992 (college, universities, lifelong learning centers). He taught in WA state for over a decade.
