Kids know. We should have been more prepared, perhaps... with a ball gown? Full-length gloves? Sparkly shoes? But the kids in the audience at Cinderella on Tour, at Miller Auditorium at WMU last night? They were ready. We saw ball gowns of all kinds, though mostly shimmery and glittery, to be honest.

You know how you find a photographer, and then click through their ENTIRE Instagram, liking each one? Or heading to their website to discover more?

From now on, our lives will be enriched by their talent, view, artistry, and sharing of their worldview.

Spanning many very different countries, the Middle East is teeming with architectural treasures and cultural delights to stimulate and amaze you when you visit. Also stunning are the landscapes and the beauty of the natural world, from deserts to dunes, seascapes to sunsets, and a shimmering splendor that soothes the soul.

Traditionally, tests and examinations evaluate how students perform in terms of learning outcome. However in a learner-centred education system, it is more important to monitor students' learning processes and to give them direct feedback.

Learning more about art from travelling

If you’re a lover of art and you’re keen to expand your horizons, travelling to see it in person can be an incredible experience. Both travel and art broaden the mind, so why not combine geographical and intellectual journeys? Doing so will give you better recall of what you learn and will help you connect with it in a wholly different way, enriching every aspect of your life.
