over the years, and as a part time art teacher, I've done a lot of
substituting--and believe me, I've learned a lot. Knowing how things are
done in your kids classrooms is invaluable to understanding how they operate
in your artroom.

There is another aspect to this too--Art student teacher's can use this,
hopefully, as a way of integrating art into regular classroom teaching
activities (teach the teachers?? hint, hint....)

I'm not wild about the idea of having to do this because there may not be
enough art jobs out there--the more experience in the art room the better,
but there could be some advantages in the long run.....
