Hello ArtsEdNetters,
I'll admit that I've been out of the correspondence "loop" for a while, and I
certainly don't want to misunderstand what I think I'm hearing/reading.
Please clarify it for me if you can. It would seem (to me) that the very
basis of art through the ages has BEEN man's search for expression,
originality/creativity...the need--the drive--or the passion, if you will--
to express an idea, thought or feeling, and to use art as the vehicle through
which to do that. If I am mistaken, then please don't correct me.
(I'd hate to think I've been wrong for this long. <G>) I've enjoyed the
search for creativity and originality and kinda like it. So have my
students--for almost twenty years now.........and I don't believe the
destination is as important as has been the journey.
