The Fables of Aesop is out now!
Servile or Serving? Created to Create


Renee Mathis


Presented at the CiRCE Regional Conference 2021.

You’ve heard about the 7 liberal arts, but what about the 7 mechanical arts? Often referred to as the “servile” arts, what are we as classical educators to make of these? Is there a place in our children’s education for learning beyond the trivium and quadrivium? In this workshop we will explore our nature as created beings who create, and why the liberal arts can make us better creators. Classical education can bear all kinds of fruit, including the fruit of love and service to our neighbor.
