As an interviewer, the purpose is to assess the candidates preparation and abilities in comparison to other candidates. I think this interviewer is asking the right thing. You want to a teacher that knows the field.

As a candidate, I would respond by saying that this is a great question, and follow with an articulate philosophy of art education, offering at least one good painting, drawing, and ceramics example to clarify my philosophy of art education. This is difficult, but certainly worth preparing because it is the same preparation needed teach.

Best wishes for your next interview.
