Start summer elective classes at Adelphi University!
The summer semester has arrived since I started studying in the Master's Program in Art Education at Adelphi University. After successfully completing the finals last semester, I am now opening a new chapter.
Last semester was a fun class to create a monologue of a fictional character from Shakespeare's play. Through this class, I felt that English and Shakespeare, which seemed like such a difficult barrier, were more friendly. This intimacy was formed when I began to fly through Shakespeare's plays, attaching the wings of my image and imagination to them.
In particular, while learning Shakespeare's iambic pentameter, I learned about his genius in terms of musicality. It was once again imprinted on the fact that artists not only perform and demonstrate their creativity, but also need to constantly explore, study, and study like scientists.
In that respect, I am truly grateful to have studied at Adelphi University as an artist. Through this process, by educating art as well as Shakespeare, I was able to look back on myself once again, rebuild my identity as an artist, and learn how to properly teach children.
The learning process was serious, the study was so much fun, and the passion of the professors who designed and conducted the curriculum was great, so my final was made a perfect 4.0. I confidently post this on my blog is not a simple boast, but I would like to share it with the hope that anyone who challenges like me will have an artist who finds a rewarding and another way, and that it will be of some help to them.
All courses are online and asynchronized. So, it is suitable for artists who are busy with art activities, exhibitions, business, blogging, and teaching like me. If you allocate your time well, plan well, and live a busier life, you will not have a problem with studying.
My summer term starts again tomorrow. Through this class, I will have a great opportunity to discover the concept of healing in art and apply it to create works. And we will create a lesson plan on how to teach these concepts to children. This will be valuable educational content for me.
Developing a lesson plan on teaching these concepts to children can be a valuable educational endeavor. Art has the power to stimulate imagination, encourage self-expression, and provide a sense of emotional release. By incorporating healing elements into your lessons, you can help children explore their feelings, cope with challenges, and develop a positive outlet for self-care.
That's truly wonderful that painting has been such a valuable healing tool for you personally. Art has a unique way of allowing us to express our emotions, reflect on our experiences, and find solace and healing. Sharing your testimony about how painting has positively impacted your life can be a powerful way to inspire and connect with others who may be going through similar journeys.
From tomorrow, I will organize the contents I study well and continue posting as before. Organizing the contents you study and continuing to share your posts will not only help you solidify your understanding but also provide valuable educational content for others.
