The arts have the capacity, wrote John Dewey in 1934, “to touch the deeper levels of life” (p. 46). Many of both the most complex and subtle forms of thinking take place through the arts and aesthetic frames of reference, argues Eisner (2002). For Biesta (2017), the arts allow us “to see what was not visible, to hear what was not audible” (p. 90). Greene (1995) adds, the arts can provide new perspectives on the lived world.
