——involving two or more academic disciplines that are usually considered distinct.
I like to add art to other subjects to make them both click. Unfortunately, this is a rather difficult task to do every week. I’ve done the easy connections like drawing with anatomy and proportion. I have done it with Astronomy.
Take two fields you have an interest in, and find common ground. Build up from there.
This is something I do CONSTANTLY in my own art work.
Lets self-evaluate today:
How are you working to achieve interdisciplinary learning now? Personally, I am working with Anatomy, Psychology, Product Design, and Art. I am also teaching smaller kids in this manner. I should teach these same individuals to seek common ground for themselves and their own interests.
Auto-didactic-is teaching yourself. Transcendental Learning is learning for the whole self mind, body, and soul. I have been combining (and confusing) these two for years. I would like to instill these values in a younger generation. Its true, we don’t need authority in an educational setting- if we all have these values.
Idea dissemination- making ideas widespread- to smaller communities is my life goal. I would like to spread ideas of acceptance of and about scientific theory, homosexuals, and women. How am I working to achieve dissemination now? At Willard and CLC. How successful are you? It is a small scale, I should improve myself so that I can bring this knowledge to a larger community.

On a side note, I feel like everything I do can’t be understood just by mentioning it. It all must be thoroughly explained, especially with my art. Why is that?
What does it all mean???
