Unlike conventional fine arts institutes, services are specifically tailored for an individual requirements and delivered on one-to-one basis, using unique and proven methodology, which accelerates learning process, reduces the learning curve and improves the retention, with over 99% success rate! In addition, following are the advantages and the key differentiators from other run-of-the-mill fine arts institutes and art academies –
Shanky studio's teaching methodology
Methodology become critical, when we are dealing with the subject related with visual art, especially where participant’s existing skills and abilities are not homogeneous. At Shanky Studio, unlike conventional fine art institutes, visual art courses are tailor-made for an individual participant, and delivered on a one-to-one basis i.e. one teacher per student, using unique, proven and hybrid methodology. Shanky Studio course designs and delivers is based upon 4C methodology, which has has following 4 steps –
- Commence i.e. define topic’s objectives in the classroom
- Concepts practice in the classroom
- Create artwork in the classroom
- Continue practice at home, which is mandatory and will tentatively consume double or triple the classroom time
Befits of the methodology
- Scope, course, modules, topics, objectives and dependencies are well defined
- Flexible and modular course, with required depth of knowledge
- Accelerates the learning process
- Substantially reduces the learning curve
- Improves the retention
- Reduces the dependency on reference picture
- Participant can independently evaluate the created artwork
- Quickly enhances the creative abilities along with artistic skills
- Ensures over 99% success
Base of methodology
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 –
- Tell: An artist can disclose and demonstrate his techniques to the participant.
- Shared discovery: Participant and artist can work together to explore participant’s hidden skills.
- Ask: Participant can take a feedback about his art work and thereby improve upon.
