<< was interested in your artsednet post re. your comment "it's a shame."
Please clarify! >>
Sorry, I didn't mean that we don't need to discuss the topic. If it sounded
that way, I apologize. I just feel that it is a shame that we do need to. If
we didn't have so many teachers who are project oriented, then we wouldn't
even have to discuss how important it is to teach the design principles. But
as it is we can't discuss it too much. Please believe me when I say that I am
behind you one hundered percent! In fact you use the same examples that I use
when I try to make the point. We need to rid our profession of the "monkey-
see-monkey-do" teachers. You know, "This is how we make a paper plate
mask.................", with no reference to a design principle or art
element. And it doesn't take fancy equipment or supplies to teach a good
foundation in art.
