look back and see what holds up and what fades away. It the mean time many more
people (not enough) are teaching art who "do it" and have a certain but shaky
of the field they try to teach. It's a shame that more people who are
"teaching" math and
science don't really "do it" and really don't have too much of a firm grasp of
they are suppose to inspire kids with. I know I'm generalizing, but there is
much truth in
my poorly worded argument here. Students seem surprised that I paint, exhibit,
even sell my art.
They are more amazed to find out that I know and am friends with real artists.
I tell them
that their math teachers get together with other math types and work on chaos
the weekends. I tell them that their science teachers are doing secret research
also, Some are!
I only wish there was more truth in my fabrications. Since I tell them I use
ear wax on my
mustache, what are they to believe anyway.
