Updated: Sep 19, 2019

THE TOPICS ADDRESSED IN THE MAKEADEMY WILL BE WHAT IS NOT TAUGHT IN ART SCHOOLS (or anywhere) (don´t get me wrong, I LOVED the education I got as a Bachelor Art Student but there are a lot they DON´T teach too)

Art schools

don’t teach us what we need to not only survive but to thrive as artists and contribute to society

don’t teach us how to leave your comfort zone to travel the empty parts of the map

don’t teach us about the business of art

don’t teach us to dream beyond the known

don’t teach how to practice self discipline

don’t teach us about creativity and the science of creative process

don’t teach us to form a network of fellow artists and supporters

don’t teach us about art as a language in its own right language without words that speaks directly to the soul

don’t teach about the spirituality of art

don’t teach about sacred geometry

don’t teach us to dream of utopia

don’t teach us about time and money management

don’t teach us exploration of the subconscious

don’t teach us thinking with your body and not your head

inspire others

don’t teach us to carry yourself with inspirational style

don’t teach time-travel

don’t teach talking with trees

don’t teach us how to face defeat

don’t teach us about how to practice facing our fears

don’t teach us about how to practice forgiveness

don’t teach us to go into the unknown

don’t teach us how to be like a musician that hits a tone with our artwork that lets every viewer be a resonance box for the tone for decades to come

In a best case scenario they teach us the materials and techniques Of the physical work but in many cases…not.

And they don’t teach us that if society is a garden artists are the flowers. if society is a body artists are vitamins. If Society is a house, artists are high ceilings.
