In the books, The Paper Kingdom and Gordon Parks: How the Photographer Captured Black and White America, we talked about learning how to take the perspective of another person and think from their point of view and mindset. Every person sees things their own way based on their likes, dislikes, past experiences, memories, and various other factors. Learning to recognize that others see things differently than you is an important lifelong skill. In this activity, we will create paint blots and learn how, even when looking at the same thing, each person can see something different.
