Education in the retrospect of the beautiful
The opposite to the intellectual part of human personality is esthetic part. It is linked with sentimentalizing of life components. It is like art of living. Human beings always strain after the harmony in every deed. People are nature's masterpieces, in this way a person's life is an art. People don't just eat - they do it elegantly inventing rules and manners, looking for better taste and food decoration. They don't just dress - they create fashion and try to look up to time. More than that, they tent to express beauty as they see and understand it.
One thing we know for sure is the fact that there are no people who do not express themselves in an artistic way. It is just that some people make it the goal of their life, other develop other skills, intellectual ones.
Artistic education or cultural education, help people discover and register evolution of their inhibited talents. To enrich knowledge in the field of arts it is needed to get acknowledged with vast array of artistic personalities.
Education and the beautiful are reciprocal interdependent. The beautiful is a result of multilateral education, at the same time there is an art of studing that makes it easier and more useful. In school the teacher is the main scenarist and his lessons are sceneries. A good pedagogue will plan his/her lesson appealing to intellectual formation as much as to cultural formation.
There are different cultures and civilizations on this earth and all o f them have a specific understanding of the beautiful. But this doesn't mean that what is art for Japanese will not be art for Europeans. On the contrary, diversity enriches the understanding of the beautiful and help people think larger. There are no limits for art and beauty expression. People use to reflect birth death, war, peace, feelings, fantasies, etc.- namely, everything that feature human life.
Esthetic education develops both hemispheres of the brain; it creates a complex, multilaterally developed personality. It determines the future way of life of children. Esthetic education is a continuous process; music, painting, fashion, etc. tastes are cultivated during life time.
There is an esthetic analphabetism which is a kind of general analphabetism. It is characterized by lack of interest in cultivating cultural level of knowledge and esthetic taste in different area of life. It should be mentioned that there are people who are gifted by nature with esthetic perception of the world and phenomena; but there are many of those who don't possess this quality. The important thing is to escape ignorance and develop or cultivate intellectual level along with esthetic one.
In Republic of Moldova esthetic education of children is inhibited rather by parents than by teachers. The main reason is the fact that art can't assure living! Artists are poorly appreciated and rewarded. State doesn't support them with any kind of programs and they are forced to survive by multiplying low quality "masterpieces" appreciated by average people with a low level of cultural education. In this way the real masterpieces are rare and are not appreciated. We can't speak about art crisis, or about artists' crisis, because there are a lot of talented artists and their creation is of high quality; we speak about the crises of appreciation.
