Do I dare to connect with what I am good at? Not an easy task but it changes everything. In my method I put flesh on the bones of ownership.
Ownership is a choice for a direction and inner motivation. And that is not something for ‘later, when I grow up’. It is not only a nice concept, but should be learned in the doing. That is exactly what this course and method offer. Ownership is necessary from the start because it changes everything!
Some quotes of my students
‘Become the Owner of your Learning’ appeals to an autonomous way of learning: it demands awareness and a consciousness over what you want to achieve in life and that is what we develop during the course. Living from the inside out, which means taking responsibility, right from the start.
At the beginning of the course, the student defines a ‘Learning Theme’: a self defined wish for development to which lessons, events and circumstances can be made subservient in order to develop in their own self-chosen direction.
The students get to know their Talent, being the quality the student is specifically good at. Defining this you can perform your work effectively and choose jobs and roles which suit you best.
The video shown here is a fragment of the video for the Talent-lesson. Also the blogs ‘TO TAKE SPACE IS TO MAKE SPACE’ and ‘AM I TOO BIG TO FIT IN HERE?’ are Talent related content for ‘Become the Owner of your Learning’.
NB: The Talent lesson is also given as a separate workshop in the third year ‘Projectweek’ of ArtEZ Conservatory Zwolle classical department.
Defining what you want and what you are good at, Dragons will certainly appear: undermining inner voices which can keep you away from doing what you want to do if you do not recognise them for what they are. Taming your Dragons is of great importance if you want to realize projects in your professional life as an artist. Learn to recognise, use and guide them to become a happy learner for a lifetime.
