About The Author

Michael DeSiano has a 30-year track record of making art, teaching art, and writing on art and art education. He began artmaking as a youth, winning awards, and pursuing an education in art. In a digression he earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. After engineering he changed course and studied at The School for American Craftsman (R.I.T}. Following a desire for greater self-expression, he earned an M.A. degree, and PhD in Creative Arts from New York University.

Michael has exhibited widely in one-person and group exhibitions. His artwork is represented by He has over 30 years art teaching experience from children through graduate school. His teaching includes 2D-Design, 3D-Design, Sculpture, Ceramics, Crafts, and Art History. He realized that creativity and art thinking guidance are essential to artmaking. However, none of books on visual creativity and thinking are research based and consequently provide mostly arbitrarily organized collections of commonly accepted wisdoms. Many of the exercises in these books are excellent. But these creativity books do not provide the content and structure needed for moving forward on your own after completing the exercises. DeSiano pursued a three-prong authentic approach to visual creativity and thinking. 

1) Using cognitive science research for organization. 

2) Selecting master artist’s quotes to give a reality base to the organization. 3) Testing and refining his creativity teaching model. 

This pursuit led to decades of teaching courses, such as courses in The Creative Process, and Visual Thinking in graduate school. The results of this life-long pursuit are available in ACT - Art Creativity & Thinking
