The Art of Teaching
Teaching is Art
* Teachers are conductors and the class is their orchestra. All students play different instruments A teacher’s job is to develop skills and make these instruments come to life as a coherent whole to make Music !!! *
About the course
Each of us remember at least one teacher who made a deep impact which we carry for the rest of our lives. Some of them actually set the course of our own life. What is that they had and the other teachers didn’t ? What made them so good ? They had a passion for what they were doing, it was the passion and of course their knowledge that made the difference. Some people just have it naturally, others appear to don’t have it, but we believe that everyone ‘has it’ and it’s just a matter of finding, exploring and nourishing ‘that’ aspect of their personalities in order to become ‘that teacher’. The fact that there are still both kinds of teachers means that the subjects we want to teach are still not explored enough and even less put in practice. Simply,’ the more passionate and secure you feel when teaching the better you will be in doing it, even when teaching difficult groups (disabled,social minorities,etc)’
* Good teachers work the room and every student in it *
How we will do it ?
We will use theatre, music and painting to awake creative-artistic forces in teachers and make those forces inseparable part of their teaching methodology. This training will help participants to find , explore and nourish the passion for teaching. It will try to ‘polish’ teachers personal way and style of teaching, incorporating methods used by artists standing in front of the audience !!! This will help teachers find their ‘own voice’ and ways of approaching difficult groups such as adults, disabled, social minorities, etc. With work practice through painting, music and theater by facilitating the affinity of participants for different art forms. The main ‘guide’ of the course will be Vasilij Kandinskij , who in his theoretical works sees a close connection between the work of art and the spiritual dimension. The color, shape, word and the music have physical and psychic effect, where it’s psychic effect is due to the spiritual vibration through which it reaches the soul. Combining different art forms results in bringing out the ‘inner tension’ or spiritual energy which can be ‘transferred’ on audience-students.
