First of all, I would like to say that art education programs seem to provide
prospective art teachers with very shallow preparation indeed. I know our
local "university" doesn't even offer a methods course above the elementary
level yet their graduates are certified K-12. They have a hard time doing
their internships in middle or high school classes.

I am a strong supporter of DBAE. Do I understand you correctly in that it is
your belief that one must teach the history of an expression before teaching
the process? I am not aware of that approach. Perhaps I misunderstood you.

Now for my big question. What do you mean by your statement that many teachers
confuse art training with crafts training? I keep scratching my head over that
one.
