The artist/educators in this book invite you to come with them on a journey of discovery into the meaning of teaching for aesthetic experience. With learning as their art, they create educational encounters with passion and feeling, and leave their students with vivid impressions, growth, and change. Each author engages in aesthetic experience from an individual perspective - as poet, dancer, visual artist, or musician - and each of them engages as an educator who brings art into his or her classroom, no matter what the subject. Inspired by the words of philosopher Maxine Greene, the contributors transform the theoretical into the practical, urging students to look to the arts and nature for simple beauty, and awaken their minds to new possibilities of creative learning.

Students who know how to tap their own resources have a better chance at success. The skills necessary to do this can be learned and it is the primary purpose of The Art of Learning to take them through the steps. Beginning with the importance of self-motivation, students are introduced to concrete methods for becoming responsible for their education and for moving beyond passive “information processing” to active involvement with classroom material. The book combines insights from philosophy, psychology, education, and studies in creativity and peak performance in a handbook on the art of being a student. Focusing on motivation, learning blocks, self-examination, and concentration, Ramsland teaches students how to utilize inner instruction to achieve thinking, creativity, and maximum personal and academic benefits. The art of being a student has been taken for granted. Students today need basic advice, and that advice should begin with the personal dynamics of the learning process.
