This coach does
have respect for what we do. I wish more coaches were like him! >>
I wanted to share a coaching "experience". I teach pretty much the entire
Football team. 95% of which have no artistic ability. I teach them how to
look at art and how to see beyond the "pretty" pictures and that art doesn't
have to match your couch. We did Double self portraits a la Chuck close
using an inkpad and their fingertip. They learned how to grid and enlarge.
I make them draw it upside down to help them see lines and space. They did
phenomenal values from their black and white photos and their portraits were
breath taking. I hung every one of them in the hall. Our football coach came
into my class and said to me "if you can teach these bozos to make work like
that, you're OK Mrs. B" I was overcome. If I have a problem with any of
these guys, I bring the coach right in.
You want the janitors and the secretaries. Don't forget the coaches! They
are your allies too.
