I teach art to children with Cerebral palsy at HMS school.and Sculpture to blind and legally blind students at Philadelphia Museum of Art. It is great to hear what we do in creative process can make some physical change in the brain.When he explained practicing repetitious juggling made change in the brain, made me think repeating to paint or make sculpture can give permanent positive physical effect in children's brain. I know brain can store so much, I have 92 years old blind student who is colorist in her sculpture. She uses color paper and paste to color her sculpture. She has not seen color since she was 8 years old.She has vivid memory of farm life from before she lost her sight. In her case creating is her reason to live. I would love to see MRI image of her brain when she thinks of color.and invent ideas for new sculpture.
