Subtle earth and sea winter colours are arranged with careful consideration. The layering of different paper shapes combines with colour to create a sense of space. The light and dark areas also support this. Paper edges create lines and spaces in the work. We can detect shapes within colours which remind us of drawings. The location of the materials in the picture plane creates a sense of distance as the eye moves upward from the shore out to sea. Once Mary became aware of her increasing ability to alternate breathing and making sounds, in a pattern cued by her tapping ï¬nger, she carried this ability over to pacing syllables and short phrases in speech. Before she started music therapy, she could articulate three-syllable phrases with the help of some cueing to breathe at the initiation of the phrase. She also knew the skills she needed to succeed: breathe, speak slowly, exaggerate articulation, and make a syllable-by-syllable attack. She could repeat single words and phrases, albeit with many attempts at self-correction. In the past decade, scientists have become very interested in studying the effects of sound on the human brain, and parents have rushed to embrace and apply any possible benefit to the development of their children. One of the early studies that spurred a rather heightened curiosity of the benefits of music was dubbed the Mozart Effect.â€ In 1993, a study by Rauscher et al. was published, which looked at the possible correlations between listening to different types of music and intelligence. Soon after, the study erroneously credited with the notion that listening to classical music, particularly the music of Mozart, made you more intelligent. As a result, people started buying and playing Mozart to their children thinking that this would increase their intelligence. Georgia Governor Zell Miller, in 1998, proposed sending every newborn in the state a copy of a classical CD based on this supposed effect.â€ The Baby Einstein toy company was also launched in reaction to this study. However, the study only demonstrated a small benefit in the area of spatial reasoning as a result of listening to Mozart, and the limited results showed that a person’s IQ increased for only a brief period of timeâ€”no longer than 15 minutes, after which it returned to normal. Other studies have not been able to replicate even the 15-minute bump in IQ.
The parrot has been symbolic to a variety of different cultures throughout time. The parrot has been a symbol of pirates to a symbol of virgin motherhood. The phrase “love birds” was based on the bird as well. The parrot was a symbol of the south according to the Native Americans. In Hindu beliefs, the parrot was a symbol of courtship. Whether you choose the parrot tattoo for symbolic purposes or for beauty, the parrot tattoo is sure to catch the attention of others. Horne-Thompson, A., Daveson, B., & Hogan, B. (2007).

A strong art program addresses many of the emotional needs of the adolescent. For instance, because creating involves making choices and decisions, it promotes independence and self-confidence. Through discussion, expression, and individual approaches to problem solving, students exercise their capacity for independent thinking. They make their own judgment and become more capable of moving away from group conformity and dependence on peers. Sensitivity to individual differences and acceptance of them is developed. A healthy art program can help students explore new emotions and develop the ability to think reflectively. Students are provided with the opportunity to stretch their imaginations through concrete, relevant problem solving. Through exploring the emotional source of their actions and inclinations, students learn to know and accept their individual identity. Walsh, R. (2002).
