Shop Class as Soulcraft by Matthew B. Crawford

Shop Class as Soulcraft by Matthew B. Crawford.



I want to read this book because I feel like going to college to “better myself” or expand my artistic abilities wasn’t the best choice. I believe I was meant to go to the university that I attended because it put me in position to make some really important connections. It put me in the city where I eventually met my wife.I learned a lot about myself in college and I learned a lot of things that weren’t written in the music curriculum.My academic classes informed and enriched me more than my music classes. I think I would have done better at cultivating my creativity if I had been an “apprentice” or if I had found more time to stay in the “dirty”,unrefined part of creativity,not the part that was offered in the new multi-million dollar Fine Arts building. I don’t regret what happened, but I want to give myself the opportunity to experience a different type of creative education.
