Base of methodology

Course are designed and delivered using 4MAT methodology framework, overlapped with SMARTER and Johari Windows methodologies.

The 4MAT learning cycle methodology is a framework for creating a dynamic style of teaching and learning, which is in sync with the human brain. Based upon recent research in the field of neuroscience and cognitive studies, the 4MAT explains how people acquire new information via observation, and then how do they process the newly acquired information in their brain.

Each topic in a module is designed using SMARTER i.e. S – Specific, M – Measurable, A – Attainable, R – Relevant, T – Time-bound, E – Evaluate and R – Re-adjust methodology. To maximize the learning, topics are delivered, with right combination of structured, semi-structured and un-structured training, with the required depth of knowledge for a particular topic.

An interaction with an artist expands the participant’s “Open Area” of per Johari windows, which enhances the participant’s knowledge, skills and experience related with the art domain. These interactions are of following 3 types –

  1. Tell: An artist can disclose and demonstrate his techniques to the participant.
  2. Shared discovery: Participant and artist can work together to explore participant’s hidden skills.
  3. Ask: Participant can take a feedback about his art work and thereby improve upon.
