Oh, Bunki, please continue to voice your opinions. let's not take things
personally. I had a mixed bag of instruction back in the late 50's and now
think back to modeling done by one teacher and neglect from another.

I think we all get frustrated by different challenges and don't always
know where to find the answers. In my Art I classes, we have been working
on a wire sculpture unit and I have about 3 students in the two classes
that say they can't do the work. i have tried different approaches but for
one new student--no luck. I think in art there are some many processes to
learn, some are from our own experiences, some we have to learn during
teaching that it is difficult. I like using the art history and
reflections, but I still feel that most people who take art classes
including students want to do hands-on. i want to mostly do the painting,
do the print, that's the most enjoyment and satisfaction.I am reluctant to
give the production only a portion of the lesson. Please comment on this.
