Phil Hansen: The art of the imperfect

Phil Hansen: The art of the imperfect is a TED video recommended to me by Deyana Matt.  In this video, artist Phil Hansen talks about how to foster creativity and work around limitations.  This short video has a powerful message about getting around the ‘brick walls’ that often get in the way of our aspirations.  Phil Hansen has a great website that Deyana has used with her art classes.  (4:06)

    This is a recent email sent from Phil Hansen on January 15th 2013 regarding the TED Audition video posted above:

    “Thanks to all of you, this new year has kicked off for me with the most awesome news, I’m going to speak at TED! As you might recall, this past summer, I became a finalist for TED’s Worldwide Talent Search, their first-ever global audition in over 14 countries. Thanks to your relentless sharing of my audition video, not only did it go VIRAL, TED just announced that I have been picked to speak at the TED2013 conference! Here’s their Speaker Line-up:

    This opportunity is such a honor, and I’m so deeply grateful for all of your support!!!
    If you are an educator(art teacher, principal, superintendent, etc), please drop me an email and let me know who you are. I have some exciting stuff planned for the year coming up.

    Many thanks,
    Phil Hansen”
