Ditto to what you said about the students learning things that their teachers
and parents never heard of. Considering that these people have fairly recently
come through our educational system, that's pretty sad, isn't it. Amazing how
many educators have never even had an art class or if they did it was a
craftsy one and they didn't learn anything about art. And certainly did not
learn to respect a class that was pretty much "monkey-see-monkey-do". I am
trying, one more time to encourage the teachers who say that they always
wanted to learn to draw, throw on the potters wheel, etc., to come in anytime
and learn to do those very things. I don't have high hopes. But I just keep
trying. If I can just hook one........
