Re: what classes to take?

Jennifer, I'm assuming, of course, that you have your undergrad degree in art
ed or something that already cerifies you to teach art in public school. May
I suggest one of two ways to go? First, a fine art masters in painting,
sculpture, printmaking, for examples, would be enriching for personal growth.
 Second, computer graphics or some type of computer art degree would be
helpful in todays emphasis on computers. IMO, most education courses- the
theories and "book knowledge", are not nearly as beneficial as the hands-on
experience one gains from years in the classroom. I love taking interesting
and enriching classes that really pertain to art ed and/or art. The others
that I "had" to take toward my degrees were a big waste of time, so I
understand your concern about choices. Good luck and enjoy!

Susan on Long Island (where it was over 100 degrees and humid in my art room
last week.) Only one more week to go. Those of you in the north who are
still in school: don't you think they should have "heat days" like they have
"snow days"?
