I certainly agree with the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto when he asserts that Art and Art Education have currently the important mission of mediating between Technology and Nature. To this purpose, Art Education is, today more than ever, called for an interdisciplinary educational approach, for what I have chosen the methods of maieutics and interactive representation.
Indeed, when we make any person feel comfortable in front of an artwork, they will become increasingly able to create an empathic connection with it, until they deeply get in touch with the artist’s soul. Furthermore, when we let them use multiple creative verbal or non verbal languages, we also help them in their process of mind connecting ideas bouncing off one another, and, in a concrete way, asserting their belief in their collective problem-solving capabilities. Not only! The combination of the two methods also stimulates their imagination and phantasy, their critical thoughts and makes them to become aware of their own spiritual side.
Consequentely, my lessons and workshops aim at giving the participants some important tools to grow as art educators or have a better approach to their own profession or anyway their everyday life. At the end of the courses they will be able to use any of their cultural mean to create a path in any museum which would touch people’s spiritual insight (kids’ or adulds’) and transform them from simple visititors into spect-actors.
My thematic seminars on Art education are aimed at school educators and teachers, museum operators, university students, parents or any adult would be interested in it.
Some of the seminars are carried out together will an illustrator and street actor or yoga master.
From theory into practice, hereunder my themes:
