The ICT Seagulls project started its 7th year with the emphasis on ARTS. According to the quality-based philosophy of the Project, every team, finalizing all the steps properly, was a “winner”. One of our targets was keeping web sites and blogs alive even after the announcement of results in addition to following the rules and regulations. So the ex-participants would also go on exhibiting and sharing their projects with the community.
The main theme of the year was; “ART”. In other words; no other project topic included in the studies that year. All the teams focused on one problem area, in their own environment which might have been their school, their village/town/city or country.
On the way of training qualified citizens, why is ART important and essential? Do we give the necessary importance to ART in our schools or home? What are the main problems of our school (?) concerning the art education? How can we solve them? How can we create awareness of ART-NECESSITY for TQPs among the school partners like teachers, parents and other community members? We will take PDCA Mindset steps as we used to do. We will implement activities of art and will share everything on our web pages or Blogs.
What kinds of branches are included in “Art”?
