Institution, which you lead, is best known as cultural and educational center for nurturing and developing well-rounded children and adults. History, literature, philosophy, and art was a significant part of education for centuries. As educator and one of believers, I have a proposition to assist your institution in this mission.
The purpose of this letter is to bring your attention to importance of art education, which was taking away from the schools, and left children behind. This issue was always associated with school budgets and made children straggle. To return what was taken from them we, Marina Bichinsky, Master in Fine Art and Visual Communication, and doctor of education, professor Jane Goretskaya, developed unique art program which includes all aspects of visual culture they would obey. This program was evaluated during five years within diverse groups of students with 98% overall satisfaction result.
Research shows importance of art education in students cognitive development and in necessity to be visual savvy in almost any career. Knowledge of traditional and digital art will made students more competitive in any aspects of their lives. Investigating art schools and programs in local area provide me with chance to tell you that program I would like to introduce do not have an equivalent. Although the context of this program is appropriate for students of post-second education institutions and also for adults as a life enrichment program, the program has a flexible structure and adjusted for the different age groups.
The most important part of program is core workshops, which based on innovative method of legendary illustrator - Dave Passalaque and classical heritage of European School of Art. Such combination makes this course unique and stunning result speaks for itself.
If my proposition grab your attention I would be very appreciated if you can arrange time to meet with me and give me opportunity to make a small presentation about the program and my students success. In some days I will follow up with hope to hearing from you.
