Kadri Mälk “Õpetaja”

In the book “Teacher”, jewellery artist and EKA professor Kadri Mälk remembers her teacher, Leili Kuldkepp, emeritus professor of jewellery art at the Estonian Academy of Arts (1931–2008), and her diverse teaching methods. In addition to direct personal and others memories, the book uses Kuldkepp’s handwritten autobiography and letters to the author. However, the main focus is on Kuldkepp’s pedagogical philosophy: what she wanted, what she was based on, how she wanted to be seen and understood as a teacher and an artist, and how she succeeded and whether she always succeeded. What is the magic key that so many bright students came to life under his hand?
