On a different note, I would disagree that only artist make great teachers,
I know several great art teachers who are not artists/educators. I think
that the choice to produce art is just that, a choice. I know several art
teachers who are more drawn to art history than studio and I think a
background rich in art history or art criticism or aesthetics is just as
valid a criteria for teaching art.
