EDUCATION AS ART #artofeducation


Many people think that education is all about the government rules, school regulations, tests and boring workbooks without the right answers. There are some who know and many others who will never be as clever. I believe that education can also be something else. It is our personal choice how we look at education and most of the time we actually have a freedom to choose.

I have noticed that my learning starts when I am inspired, my imagination is flourishing and I have the possibility to follow my intuition. Learning begins when I feel the possibility of creative experimentation. Usually it happens when I have other creative people around me and I can get fully engaged with my surroundings and myself, totally forgetting about other things, the world outside the space. I begin to believe that everything is possible if I just keep on working. In this creative process I am able to learn very much in a short time. I think that anyone who is able to provide the kind of experiences to others, is a wonderful teacher.

This is an invitation for everyone to tag their personal learning moments and share them with others. In this way we can collectively inspire ourselves to become better teachers for each other.

the two violinmakers

In the room
Filled with sounds of music
The shadows of dancing women
Behind the dark windows
You can feel the blue sea
In the room
Full of love
The sounds of music
To the pleasant voice of tools and
The wood
Changing slowly form
Is the wood
In the hands of
Under the eyes of
Close to the hearts of
The two violinmakers
Day after day
Night after night
Slowly the wood
Changes its form
The women are dancing
The snow is falling
The sea behind the windows is freezing
The two men
The violinmakers
Keep molding the form of a tree
I hear the voices
The music
The tools
The sea
As the viola
Is being born
