The reception of the people in Budapest was great and I enjoyed so much meeting Colleagues, Artist, Professor, Teachers and Students. This last conference of the INSEA, Convention in Budapest 2011, I was experiencing two workshops using scientific tools: 1) COLOR SCIENCE IN STUDIO ART (color in motion in a studio art 2) SCIENCE IN DIGITAL ART (painting with light in motion in a studio art), from the Interactive Multimedia book for Educators in Art in High School, College and even University level (PhD art/media 2009, Université du Québec à Montréal, Canada).

My principal objective was to give an opportunity to use tools of science through art and technology. It was also to suggest to educators to experiment different Interdisciplinarity approaches, << oriented by three conceptual terms <<Convergence, Hybridity, Emergence>> is to present easy and simple activities to use in the classroom for Educators and strategies while using interactive multimedia through Art, and help them develop an efficient hybrid way of teaching. 

The response was very positive from the participant. Demystifying and introducing tool of science through art and technology is not always evident, and without pretention to be a scientist educator was not the purpose of this workshop, but its possible to use tools of science and using this exploration through art and technology strategically on a easy way and creating a new orientation of your strategically teaching using existing tools of science available for everybody.

The strategic orientation is simple and it’s based on discovery, as a starting point for beginning a process of research and analysis by mixing progressively, art, technology, and science through multimedia process. Than, facilitate and convey the ability using creative problem solving exercises, and also demonstrate the ability to define a concept and objectives, investigate techniques of various media, by various activities, implementing sound images video, animation and performance. This bridge between traditional approaches to art, science while strategically facilitating the hybrid approach, which is the combination of traditional and technological components, within the classroom on a daily basis. 

In the next conference of INSEA in Cyprus 2012, I will introduce the content of the Global training workshops for educators in Art, and I am offering my collaboration to participate to global training in your institution with your student and educators.
