Art Education has always been a challenge for the academic community. But what if we take a look at some old methods of art education through Persian culture?

Dr. Seyyed Mohsen Hashemi, born in 1965 Sabzevar. In 1985 he entered the School of Cinema and since 1986 he is teaching photography. By the age of 27, he became a lecturer at TUA. Studying Masters of Arts in Tarbiat Modarres University and attending educating courses was a great help. In 2006 PhD degrees from the Tehran University of Art. He is a member of Cinema (Film) faculty of TUA since 1999. Dr. Hashemi is now the cultural and social deputy director of TUA but he prefers lecturing and educating to any other job. He believes that there are joint areas between "art" and "education" in Iranian culture that unfortunately have been neglected.
