What was the content of your AP sessions? Addressed to subscriber who attended
workshops at TCU.) I, too, have been teaching AP for several years and, trained
in both traditional and abstract/non-objective methods of painting, prefer to
see students develop the ability to draw and compose meaningful images rather
than jump quickly into what is sometimes impossible to critique, at least,
within the usual parameters of the secondary school art classroom today.
Non-objective art is not widespread at the secondary level at this time.
Students need, however, to be aware of the lessons learned from AE, and there
were some. Beyond that, we all know that artists break boundaries to create
images which may have few familiar precedents and for which our traditional
criteria are inappropriate. To shock, stun, surprise, stimulate--these are all
legitimate aims of art, aren't they?
