    The one major difference I have noticed since I started the art education program is the close interactions and discussions lead both by the students and the teachers. Just about every single art education class I have taken has had this circle-like setup which has resulted in deeper, more significant conversations about what it is to be an art educator. Having this setup has allowed me to listen closely to thoughts and opinions as well as bounce my ideas off of others. Not all students are accustomed to this kind of learning, which at first glance can seem a bit intimidating as you are thrown into the middle of discussion without any cover. However, sitting in the circle and listening to others talk about the subject of discussion feels a lot more relaxed and informal than a regular class setting. Having this informal setting really helps calm any nerves of speaking in front of others.
