Max Beckmann, who is the maestro of German expressionism and an educator of art, once described the education of art, 'we cannot teach art itself, but we can direct students to the path of art.'

Instead, the path of modern arts is in unique, creative experience, and in the training process of the ability to judge art visually and objectively. Moreover, the 'path' could be a general curriculum that educates artistic senses and the power to express oneself in a unique and creative method.
