"In order to exist real education in the strict sense of the word, there is one basic condition: that this educational process is the subject of investment and passion by both educators and trainees and, to put it bluntly, that if there is no love in the education there is no education! If one learns something at school it is because, in turn, a teacher in a class - and even in university - falls in love with him and falls in love with him because he sees that this professor himself is in love with what he is teaching."
Kornilios Kastoriadis, (1922–1997), Greek philosopher, economist and psychoanalyst
" The main purpose of education is the all-round development of the personality, on an emotional, cognitive and social level. The use of works of art is a teaching method that can be used in education at all levels and especially in teacher education. Each artwork is a creative expression, with multidimensional educational value. Trainees can benefit and be taught, through their contact with various forms of aesthetic expression, such as painting, photography, literature, sculpture, etc. In particular, contact with art helps learners to fully develop themselves , to gain sensitivity, learning ability, critical thinking and creativity, thus contributing to the understanding of themselves, other people and the world in general. Thus, the "Educating Teachers through Art-TEPArt AUEB" action aims to cultivate Love through Art in education where the teacher is in love with what he teaches and the student falls in love, through his teacher, with the knowledge he offers. This is the pedagogical Love that creates the catalyst for education to be transformed into Cultivation.

"As part of the TEPArt AUEB Innovative Action of the AUEB Teacher Education Program, this year's students, accompanied by Dr. Vasiliki Brinia, Head of the Program and artist of the High School of Fine Arts, visited many art exhibitions so that through experiences they could understand the importance of the connection of art with education. Today's students and future teachers were invited to enter the visual and psychological position of tomorrow's students and create works of art with themes: The Student, Aspects and Optics.The students worked in groups and due to the conditions ,by distance and created works of art based on the materials and the possibilities they had. Our collaboration was very pleasant and during the preparation of the works we shared deep and sincere feelings. Each communication was interactive and contributed to the development of students' ideas with the final result of the projects presented today. So I can say that this action for this academic year ends with the best memories and the best omens for next year. "
