Artsednet Folks,

Art educators and artists want to teach the value and essential importance
of art not only in integrating subjects but also as a genuine tool for life.
Inquiry-based learning is important but as we educate teachers of other
subjects of this value and "THE ARTS" amazing ability to connect things
visually, kinesthetically, auditorially and analytically how do we prevent
the abuse of under-informed teachers using art in a negative damaging fashion?

For instance the teacher, administrator, layperson who comments to a students,
" Well, we can't ALL do art well". These kinds of statements said by people
of assumed authority can do enormous damage in a very short period of time.

Any comments?
