The expressiveness of a doll can be generated by the way it is constructed and animated, by the ability of the puppet to transmit messages through the play with the doll. Through color, sound, simple and clear suggestion of the puppet’s message to the spectators, the object comes to life and the puppet show becomes an artistic act. In other words, the purpose of the puppet show creator is to suggest in his representation human behavior in the most expressive ways possible - using all the means of language that he has in an original and creative way.
Annually, in Kalv is organized one of Sweden’s most innovative festivals for Contemporary Music. For the first time, on 8-11 August 2019 took place a workshop in Music Journalism field.

To conclude, organising a Musical Journalism Workshop during a festival of contemporary music is a commendable initiative which plays a major role in getting acquainted and gaining a better understanding of the compositional intentions of present-day creators. We will be happy to come back here, in a world at once picturesque and post-modern owing to these unforgettable musical encounters.
The art of using language for public expression in order to persuade target audience to support development initiatives is a key reason for graphic communication. This requires communication actors particularly, the graphic encoder to know salient input and output variables of communication for effective mediation. However, the prevalence ignorance of these variables, often results in ineffective media production that is counter-productive to development. Therefore, this paper focused on production of practical rhetoric in graphic language for development programmes. The paper employed the critical-historical-analytic examination and content analysis methods. It introduced the reader to the need for practical rhetoric in visual communication. Furthermore, it highlighted the salient input and output variables that the graphic communication actor need be conversant with in order to produce visual rhetoric, using the McGuire’s Communication/persuasion Matrix. And it exemplified graphic media that result from application or neglect of the knowledge of the variables. The paper found that consideration of the variables afforded production of effective rhetoric in graphic language. The paper ended with the need for graphic encoders to internalize knowledge of the input and output variables and utilize it during the process of media production to generate visual rhetoric with desired effect.
Contemporary psychologist Didier Anzieu220 speaks of five phases of the process of creation: creative emotion, gaining consciousness, transposition, elaboration, and exposure. Each of the five phases has a correspondent in the stages of development of visual-plastic educational activities, and the role of the teacher is essential in each of them. Starting from the five phases, we propose an approach pattern to the creative process, adapted and developed during the years of experience in pre-university educational environment, and refined throughout the research activity carried out in the university environment.
The article hereby includes conceptual aspects of the musical competences formation. It describes the realization of this process operating with the concepts of well-known occidental, Russian and local researchers. One of the ideas characteristic to the researchers’ pedagogical thinking is that, during the process of musical competence formation through art, the acquisition process mechanism is happening. For integrity in insuring the practical realization at of a musical education, the methodology we propose is based on research, an imposing theoretical network of successful pedagogical practices of remarkable scientists from all over the world. The analyzed theories are a source of inspiration and constitute the theoretical universe which contributes to as truthful as possible musical education.
George Enesco was a remarkable composer, conductor, teacher, violinist and pianist. He is one of the few “chosen” ones who lived under the emblem of the idea of BEAUTIFUL in its multiple images: by art, in the name of art and under the sign of art. Being in the circuit of authentic spiritual values, his entire pianistic creation is delicate, subtle, refined and elegant but extremely difficult as an artistic technique and expression; it calls for the intelligence accordingly, a lot of common sense, potential of much spiritual unrest, very much scenic experience, by determining the interpreters to very special refinement and expressive elevation, in addition to a worked touché trained in the art of the pianistic expression.
The present study aims to describe the ways in which art education impacts community life through art products. The sample consists of 32 teachers/creators in various fields of work such as fine arts, composition, literature, musical interpretation, choreography and acting. Categorical content analysis is used for data analysis. The highest-ranking emerging theme is related to the means of educational intervention in the community through art. Artistic education leads to empowerment and emancipation by provoking people to think differently while the exposure to artistic creations has a therapeutic effect and contributes to identifying new ways of action. Artists in the role of teachers feel a responsibility both for the educational process and also for the emotional message that their creative product transmits to the audience.
The University of Prishtina “Hasan Prishtina” is the biggest higher education institution in Kosovo, which ever since its foundation has held the main burden of education and the development of the Kosovar society. If in the past the University of Prishtina was not only a hearth of knowledge, but also an icon of Kosova’s high education, now its mission is to offer stable and qualitative education to the new generation, functioning as an asset for the development and the strengthening of the Kosovar society. Currently, the UP is the biggest higher education institution in the Kosovo, with 42.006 students, above 1.000 academic staff members and around 350 administrative staff members, accommodated in 14 Academic Units. The research conducted in this paper reflects quality aspects in artistic education for sustainable product design, especially in art, architecture, creativity and innovation in academia curricula. The research methods consist of empirical observation in academia, direct observation of teaching methods, and promoting contemporary interactive teaching methods. To perceive a clearer research data, exploring was made within: The department of Architecture, Department of Anthropology-Archeology, The faculty of Arts in the University of Prishtina, also with UBT - Higher Education Institution in Kosovo, in the context of the possibilities for the improvement of the curricula’s, within actual and accredited academic frameworks. Research concludes that new teaching strategies must involve a new closeness, a brand new and more refining holistic system, as a response to less functional academic curriculums.
Docimology is based on knowledge from the field of psychology and pedagogy. There are several functions of the didactic evaluation, related to their social and personal relevance. The interpretive evaluation involves a degree of subjectivism which, however, can be diminished by experience, patience and permanent self-control. The proposed evaluation methods will be applied simultaneously, with the objectification of the relevance of each one and with maximum sense of responsibility on the part of the evaluator.
The process of artistic perception in instructive and formative actions is identified with the educative action itself. In this process the considerable weight rests on the participative state kid to the design, development and evaluation/self-evaluation (through prescription of individual behavioural maps, anticipating practical actions, varying operations, performing the tasks by choosing the optimal variants for solving) and the dynamics of professional competence of teachers to achieve gradually the theoretical design process and practical actuating, by identifying educational content and valuable actions, diagnosing the individual resources, planning, forming hypotheses, sequential and final evaluation. In our statements we proceed from the reality that the artistic activity differs much from other human activities through its ontological specifics, which requires taking into account the opportunities and challenges that arise in individual potential manifestation of the child, act that expresses by transposing the theoretical prescriptions into practical actions indisputable by the presence of emotional-affective reactions, by developing projects and logistical maps of action, is not waiting for certain stimuli coming from outside, but by enhancing the artistic intentions and decisions of child – subjects of education.
