Digital Literacy & E-Learning
"At the start of this year it was hard to imagine that the whole world would be experiencing the dramatic changes that have now come to be called ’the new normal’" (Kuchah Kuchah, 2020)
In the period of worldwide public health emergency, with mandated quarantine for working and educational experiences (in the year 2020), the majority of educational institutions in the world have faced the forced emergency lockdown and migration into the digital, online or virtual learning and teaching environments. In addition, many teachers and learners were displaced out of academic institutions worldwide, migrating to their home countries or changing their physical locations due to the worldwide closure of boarders and transport lines. The mandated social distancing measures, travel restrictions and prohibitions of large gatherings of people in indoor and outdoor, has greatly affected many working and educational sectors, especially sectors of the arts (music, opera, ballet, dance, theatre), cultural and creative industries (Flew & Kirkwood, 2020).

Distance Learning, Teaching Art Techniques and Topics Online
How to teach art lessons at a distance? We dealt with this topic throughout the corona period, when we had no choice but to teach at a distance. We have developed e-learning courses. We created the first lessons and tried online lessons. E-learning is a project for us that we want to develop further and we are looking for friendly organizations and financial support for our projects.
