RE: "Am I sacrificing the opportunity to foster creative=20
problem solvers to teach them Art History? I know
this sounds very Lowenfeldian, but I think we should=20
all be asking ourselves this."

Lowenfeld was a dear, but 180 degrees off about elementary=20
levels of visual arts instruction.

As many others in his day, Lowenfeld was caught up
in an antiquated view of educational psychology that promoted
the use of art as therapy - not art as subject matter, i.e. as learning
principles and elements of design.

Answering a question with a question:

How far would I get with the teaching of: reading, writing, and =
arithmetic
if I placed only examples on the board, and spoke of only their =
histories?=20
