Re: Teaching the merits of abstract art


Date: Sun Mar 11 2001 - 18:24:17 PST

Jean- I have taught in the same school and the same room for 7 years. It
has some obvious advantages and some disadvantages. I do see progress and a
very rewarding,"I can do that" attitude. But the disadvantage I'm seeing now
is that we grew so quickly, middle school is on a wheel and only sees me for
9 wks in 7th grade. I dont see them again till 9th grade and we loose a lot
of confidence and continuity. Some very talented students get way-layed in
sports and other rewarding activities . Sadly Art becomes their past and not
their future.
