It was disheartening when I realized a pervasive "I can't draw" attitude
amongst the faculty at my school. It was all I could do to not just shout
"BUT you can LEARN" to them. It was my assumption that TEACHERS would
understand this, but they are lumped (in my opinion) into the heap of adults
who simply believe that drawing ability is some sacred token bestowed on just
a few. I also heard a new young teacher reply, when complimented on her
french braided hair/pony tail, that she could only braid her OWN hair, not
anyone else's??? Is this possible? I guess so, if TRYING or PRACTICING are
not part of your learning processes. Guess I am venting.
