The Bauhaus philosophy was that art was not something that could be taught. I am also interested in their ideas about physical exercise and how it was integrated into their art-making process. They would dedicate an entire full day a week to exercise. Some say it was to establish physical readiness which makes creative work possible. They believed the training of the body as an instrument of the mind is of great importance to a creative person.
Design and form discusses these topics further.
