Visualization or Spatial Intelligence is an area in the theory of multiple intelligences that deals with spatial judgment and the ability to visualize with the mind's eye. It is defined by Howard Gardner as a human computational capacity that provides the ability or mental skill to solve spatial problems of navigation, visualization of objects from different angles and space, faces or scenes recognition or to notice fine details. Gardner further explains that Spatial Intelligence could be more effective to solve problems in areas related to realistic, thing-oriented, artistic and investigative occupations. Art and design disciplines, by their very nature, focus on learner creativity and tend to view knowledge in its own perspectives. The development of creativity has become an important educational goal intended to provide a rationale to increase potential learning and give students confidence as a pedagogic model. Also, the creative pedagogic approach will emphasize the learning environment to create a sense of excitement and enthusiasm among the students in order to increase enjoyment and commitment to the program. Students are required to be active participants at all times and they are encouraged to determine the pace and content of classroom sessions and to work in ways which suit their individual approaches to learning. The relationship between theory and practice are constantly linked with concepts to increase their analytical skills and thus their ability to make judgments.
