Fixed by Amy E. Herman
The Fine Art of Problem Solving // Herman outlines her step-by-step approach, providing a fresh set of tools to help us kick start our critical thinking skills and enable us to find solutions to some of our most intractable problems. Herman explains the artist's use of the creative process and teaches us how to analyze paintings, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and contemporary art. By learning how to look at these works more astutely, we hone our powers of perception and discover deep-seated truths about ourselves that often prevent clear-thinking and optimal decision making. Once we recognize our biases, we can overcome them and see solutions we were previously blind to. Herman's approach doesn't take an art degree -- only the willingness to open our eyes and our minds.
