What is Sublime’s Teaching for Artistic Innovation about?
Sublime’s Teaching for Artistic Innovation is an initiative by Sublime to enhance the teaching capabilities of the art teachers and take art education not just to the shortlisted few( through Berserk) but to all the children of a school. It is an initiative to enable the art education in a school through the medium of value addition and effectively enhance the creative capabilities of a child.
Why should your school participate in Sublime’s TFAI program?
According to the economists of the country, by the year 2020, 65% of India will be under the age of 35 years and 50% of India will be under the age of 25 years. The average age of Japan will be 47 years, China is around 40 years, Europe is 46 years, United States is 40 years while the average age in India will be 29 years- The youngest population.
International labour organization has worked out that 116 million people in the workable age group of 20 to 24 years will be required in the coming decade. China will have only 94 million and US will be 17million people short at what they will need at working age. In order to equip and take advantage of this economic reform and showcase innovation and brilliance across fields Sublime believes that the conventional education need to be supported with the creative education as a fully embodied physical experience is what that triggers the imagination.
According to Ken Robinson, “Creativity is a dynamic process of having original ideas that have value more often than not comes with the interaction of different disciplinary ways of seeing things. “, Sublime’s TFAI program is designed to enable the teachers with the know-how who in turn will enable their school to equip their students to strive and hone whatever makes them unique as an independent unit.
