Today’s image, which I put on the white board in class today, is of the "Puella abderet vultum eius" — "The girl is hiding her face." I made up the Latin; it’s not from Agrippa or Picatrix or any ancient source, because I’m trying to give kids a sense of how Latin works… how pronouns and nouns fit together to form sentences. But at the same time I’m seeding my school with ideas and images that help tell the story of visual learning. It’s having some effect; kids and adults are starting to care more about visual literacy as an important skill; little by little, I’m changing hearts and minds. So far, so good.
