I don't know about the rest of you, but the message duplications
and mime code conversions are enough to discourage a saint.

RE: "What's wrong with art therapy?"

There is nothing wrong with art or any other type of therapy.
Many use, language, music, and physical education as therapies
without negating process/skill formation.

What we may want to explore is the nature and content of art processes,
as one does, language, music or physical education.

How can anyone explore a subject without a knowldege-base;
language without an alphabet; music without notes and harmony,
or physical education without developing muscle skills and a game plan?

Without skill training, how would children become, authors, composers,
and athletes? The same holds true for visual arts training. Without =
training,
there will be fewer artists to fill 21st century slots for graphic =
designers, and
art directors for stage, screeen, and television.

As many industry art directors report: "We can't find anyone who can,
draw, paint, or construct well enough to fill job-entry positions. =
Where's
the "meat"?

Don't they teach art in public school anymore?

Perhaps they should look to art therapy, or read
Neurologist,Frank Wilson's new book on "THE HAND" for answers.
