I think an awful lot of young people today seem to want to be given
answers instead of looking for answers themselves. I don't know if the
teacher has directed them to this group or how they found us. I don't
mind the occasional college student but highschoolers get in on it to.
Instead of wanting to be told specific answers,I'd rather they ask about
a topic and if anyone knows any links. I just don't answer most of the
questions unless I have a link for them. People who may be in a cultural
Art History class and want to be given names of Artists should first
open the Art History book,try to do a little research on your own. How
will you ever do a paper in college? I agree we can be a resource, but
I believe we can do more by helping one "THINK" on their own. This will
give them more power. EXERCISE your mind and it will expand as a muscle.

This is not a response, but rather, a cry for help. I am
a senior in high school doing research on impressionism
for my senior project. I need a couple of questions

1. How has impressionism affected modern life, in the art
sense and beyond?
2. HOw did impressionism evolve?
3. Who were some of the most influential artists?
4. Are there any impressionist artists today?
5. Are there any people or sources you could refer me to
that could benefit my research?

If anyone could help me with these questions, please get
back to me as soon as possible. You can e-mail me at
NickiG4 Thank you.

Could asking questions like Nicki did not be part of the research
When my kids were smaller they used ask me about all sorts of things. I
spoke to their respective teachers and she said that the process of
asking is just as important as it is necessary to know which questions
to ask.

I am sure this helped Nicki as she must have got a lot of info as well
as being pointed in the right direction. We are all resources for
subsequent generations.
