The the discussion about the conflict between artist/art teacher.....and
how that manifests itself in teaching....which would include technique vs.
expression.....(in this conversation anyway) is not a new one. This
particular topic is a small piece of a research project that I have been
working on.... Dealing with the transition from Artist to art
teacher. Anyway......this short list of some of the writing on this topic
might be interesting to a few of you. Contact me privately for any
questions. I especially like Andersons and Balls work for understanding
where/why the conflicts are.
Oh. ...and I am 49 and need to go back to work....so I can start my 24 year
stint to retirement. Barnes and Noble part time doesn't do much for saving
