Event description
How the Brain Constructs Beauty from Music, Art, or a Gourmet Dinner

About this event

Join us to discover what we can learn about ourselves, and our students, by exploring the neuroscience of how the brain creates beauty. Each of four sessions will focus primarily on one piece of art – e.g., Beethoven’s Eroica, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa – as a way to examine closely what is universal, and what is unique, in the way that our brains learn to understand, and feel, the beauty of art.

While the course is not explicitly about Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and does not require a background in that field, each session will provide opportunities to deepen or extend any existing knowledge of the UDL framework and its application to new domains.

The Four Sessions:

  • Part 1 – The Eroica: What Beethoven’s most disruptive symphony reveals about learning and the brain
    • October 20, 2021 (6:00 PM - 7:30 PM ET)
  • Part 2 – Mona Lisa’s Smile: What Da Vinci’s most enigmatic portrait reveals about learning and the brain
    • October 27, 2021 (6:00 PM - 7:30 PM ET)
  • Part 3 – The French Laundry: What an expensive gourmet meal reveals about learning and the brain
    • November 3, 2021 (6:00 PM - 7:30 PM ET)
  • Part 4 – Evelyn Glennie: What a deaf musician’s Grammy Awards reveal about learning and the brain
    • November 10, 2021 (6:00 PM - 7:30 PM ET)
