I’m in my 4th (last) year of bachelor of fine art in education in Amsterdam which will yield me a first degree teaching credential.
It feels a little like two studies in one:
On one side you get all the aspects of art education (psychology, teaching methodology, art history from all art disciplines, cultural history, contemporary art, ways to look at art, educational internships and projects at schools, etc.)
On the other side you’re being trained in becoming an autonomous artist. The vision is that they believe an art teacher should be an artist himself. You learn a really wide range of every technique (2Dm 3D, design, new media, etc.) because you need to be able to transfer those to your pupils, you developpe skills on working with concepts, etc.
It’s very broad which is hard sometimes but provides a very wide perspective for the professional field.
For my graduation I’m currently internshipping at FabLab (workplace that offers digital fabrication and providesaccess to modern techniques such as 3D printing and laser cutting). I’m setting up their educational department, develop and preform workshops with modern techniques, and use their equipment in my own art work. And I’m writing a thesis in which I comine art, education andddd wolves, lol. Bullshitted my way thought that to be honest because I just wanted to do what I like and write about wolves, lol.
First day of school since surgery, completely floored me. I was going to post a lot of wolves for you, but I need to take a nap first. Hang in there, I’m sorry for not being so active lately :( ♥ 🐺 🐾
You mean when I “study” them? In that case; I do. I often print out research because I like underlining things and writing down notes and questions etc. next to it for further research. The rest I just save in my head immediately so I don’t need to write down notes for that anymore when it’s in my head already.
This is so sweet, thank you so much
I wish I could draw and paint wolves for a living, heheh ^^
