Great article, Christine--important for all to read in my opinion. This topic
reminds me that each group of students is a rich lode of cultural identities,
interests and beliefs. As teachers we can mine that lode first and formost by
teaching students that art is personal, is about ideas, as well as "beauty"
and that artists make art derived from their lives, their passions, their
wishes, beliefs and their experiences. How can our students' ideas come to the
front of our classrooms?
