Reatha, Do you mean studio art teachers or do you also include art
history? If the latter, I am a Social Studies teacher who teaches AP Art
History and I think it's a valid backgroun; I make up for my relative
ignorance on creating art by bringing in guest artists. I also know
artists who teach art history and work with historians to fill in their
social science gaps. Regarding studio art, as a parent I would want to
know that my child's art teacher is her/himself an artist (whether
professional or amateur).
Hope this helps.
