Mathematics is one of the oldest fields of knowledge and study and has long been M considered one of the central components of human thought. Some call it a science, others an art and some have even likened it to a language. It appears to have pieces of all three and yet is a category by itself.

The biggest concern about the present main stream education is that it kills creativity. The frenzy with which ‘art’ is being introduced seems like an attempt to counter these damages. But ‘schooling’ not only kills creativity, it also kills authenticity, cultural diversity and aesthetic sensibility. It will be worthwhile to look at what has been the impact of teaching art, architecture and design in this country. This could give us lessons as to what not to do in schools.

Before we begin certain issues entwined with the word “Pedagogy” need to be pointed out and B elaborated. This word is commonly used as a convenient hold all but because of this and in some contexts inspite of this it still cannot be completely discussed by itself.  To explore its implications some other key elements need to be specified.

Can Pedagogy stand by itself?

Introduction

It is amazing that hardly 10-days go by without my meeting someone who has fond memories of my grandparents, Geoffrey and Laura Kendal, and their theatre company, Shakespeareana, that would annually visit schools across the country bringing the magic of Shakespeare, Bernard Shaw and other contemporary playwrights to school and college children. The experience of these performances left an indelible impression on a generation of English school-going children. This was in the 1950’s and ‘60’s.
My USP to generate interest in art stems from a simple understanding that art is within you as good as it is around you. I have adopted the method of making the student understand, respect and experience the values and ethics of the process of art and culminating this whole process into a product. The best method to start art with any young budding minds is sand art or a collage using wastes around you. I have personally seen a tremendous positive impact on the young minds in being interested in art through this activity.
