In response to your question about who teaches art in different countries,
in the U.S. in the elementary grades, if art is taught at all, it can be
taught by the main classroom teacher with or without any formal art training
or, in some lucky schools, it is taught by an art teacher.

We had a lengthy debate related to this topic -- who "should" teach it -- a
while back. If you'd like, I think I still have some of the discussion
printed out and could send you a copy if you'd like (send me your mailing
address -- epaul).

Best wishes, Elizabeth Paul
