Hi all on the artsednet list. I have not been putting much into the
conversation lately but always enjoy greatly to follow it. I think we donīt
have to agree on so many things but rather respect each others views ,like
we most of the time do it seems to me. I have been thinking about the
discussion on "great artists", "cool artists" etc. etc. And it has reminded
me of something a fellow art teacher once said to me. "If we look at the
artists of the world as a pyramid, society or we ourselves always put the
best on top, but in order for a pyramid to not crumble we have to have all
the layers that hold up the top stones and the onces on the bottom or
anywhere in the structure are as important as the top. Also today these
artists maybe on top but who knows in 50 or 100 years to come." I think of
this when I introduce my students to local artists, contemporary artists as
well as the "masters", they are all equally important to the art education
of the child.
Regards froma the far north, Rosa
