Welcome to yet another issue of Artwolfe! If you have been following the life of this little publication, you’ll notice that it has been growing steadily over the year. We are now starting our sixth volume and we have no intention of slowing down. We’d also like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our new writers and contributors, including the poets and wordsmiths that have been contributing to our fiction and poetry edition, Wordwolfe – thank you dear friends!
This issue takes a broad look at education and the intrinsic role of art in education. We have some seriously thought-provoking pieces so settle down and settle in. Kathryn Muller, a Fine Art graduate who is currently doing her postgraduate year in teaching and Jacob Hoffman, in his final year of Medical School, have collaborated to produce a piece confirming all that you may (or may not) have suspected about modes of knowledge, modes of learning and the role of artistic creation within all of this. Followed by Chris Olivier’s fascinating article about the role of creativity in education as he highlights a few issues that need looking at when re-imagining what education could look like.
Then check out Melissa Kandido’s piece which hopefully will encourage you to cross a creative threshold and explore the ways in which you make and engage with art. We also have a beautifully written piece, It Felt Like Love by Masiyaleti Mbewe and last but most certainly not least, take a look at Tina Schonheit’s article that takes a look at the questions constantly revolving around art and art education.
