Happy Birthday Art School in Budapest

  I usually say that Art School in Budapest is so new that it is still in diapers and in the same time, thinking that this March it celebrates it’s first birthday makes my heart sing. You see, no matter what others had told me, I somehow have always managed to believed that dreams can come true.  This is how I chose the somewhat unpredictable  path of an artist and this is how the dream of Art School in Budapest was born a year and a half ago.  

  The idea of starting a school came out of my needs: my deep wish to share my knowledge and passion for art and nonviolent communication, to have a job which will be fun and give a lot meaning to my life  and a job which will provide me with opportunities to grow and develop as a person, a teacher and an artist. How did it go?  Is my school a success? I do not know. Maybe it is better if you judge about the success. All I know is that I witnessed so much beauty in watching my students open up creatively and develop artistically, that it has been a lot of fun and learning for me and I that I am a more enriched person now than what I was a year ago. And this is what makes me get up from my bed every morning.

   I find it important to remember that I have not been alone working on this dream come true.  I am overwhelmed with gratitude thinking about all of you who helped me get to where I am right now. Thank you for your unselfish professional advices – they were a big learning and support. Thank you for introducing my school to your friends, communities and clubs - I experience it as your care and love. Thank you for expressing what your needs were and for giving me your genuine feedback– it heeled my trust in honesty of people and it supported my growth. And above all, thank you for finding love in your hearts to accept my mistakes and voulnerability – it strengthened my believe that  in order to learn, teach or run a school we all can put away shields and role-playing and simply be ourselves. Thank you all for supporting my vision that learning and teaching can be a personal, meaningful and in the same time a fun activity and so reinforcing my hope that schools could become part of the change we would like to see happen in this world.
