According to designer and educator Inge Druckrey, one of the best presents of art education is to enjoy seeing: "Suddenly, you begin to see things in your daily life that you never noticed." In this acclaimed video, Inge explains how she teaches design students to see.
It's a long, 38-minute video (bookmark it if you don't have time now), but it contains many lessons on creativity, such as how limitations can be a structure for finding creative solutions, and why just staring can help you see what's possible. It's also a beautifully made film.
Whether you're an aspiring artist or not, the video can teach you how to really look, notice and appreciate design details, and become more critical and curious in the process.
