After the wonderful art exhibition in April, DDartists class has been focusing on learning and applying effective communication and relationship building skills. Most recently, we discussed the importance of friendship and what is important to maintain friendship. We often avoid or point fingers at each other when conflict arises. Learning “power of vulnerability” from Brene Brown’s Ted Talk video, DDartists class is learning how to address our emotions without blaming others, acknowledging our and other’s feelings, and asking for a positive change. We are also applying our learnings to our daily lives, and changes often require courage. Thus, in our class, we all encourage and support each other to have courage, connecting, interacting, and communicating with others in the world!
