The ArtScience Program for Realizing Human Potential
Abstract

Abstract:

Established in 1994, the Art-Science Program integrates the arts and sciences, applying their methods of creative inquiry, critical thinking, real-world problem solving and collaboration skills for meeting today's challenges. Using arts-based learning tools and facilitated hands-on workshops, individuals learn to make and explore symbolic models through Metaphorming. This process connects and transforms information in personally meaningful, purposeful and useful ways. The symbolic models serve as a global common language to help improve communication by fostering understanding.
