Artists generate ideas through memory, observation, collaboration, imagination, experimentation and psycho-emotional processes. The rhizomatic curriculum structure is ever changing.
Art production has now become a vehicle for practicing idea generation. Children take ownership of the art ideas they are developing. The teacher's role shifts from authoritarian to enabler, facilitator, consultant, coach and collaborator.

|TAB Teachers disseminate knowledge in many ways. Large group presentations are one way.|
|Students select a center to begin their art activities.|

I first met my good friend and colleague Bryan Reinholdt through the Teaching for Artistic Behavior Group back in 2009. Since then Bryan has been working very hard as an art teacher, artist and art education advocate. Currently, Bryan is collaborating with Dr. George Szekely and Dr. Ilona Szekely to promote creativity development through the Center for Creative Art Teaching. The children at New Palestine Elementary and I have been very happy to assist Bryan with an inspirational art advocacy film featuring Dr. Szekely, University of Kentucky art education students, and the teachers and students at Trinity School in Atlanta, Georgia.
