Dear Kathryn,
Many thanks for your thoughts on teaching the elements and principles. I have
been bothered by the feeling that it is just too much of a "formula" approach
to build whole lessons around teaching the elements and principles. Sure, we
need to convey an understanding of the concepts, but I agree that the "big
picture" is what is important.

to have a complete understanding of the elements and principles of art in
order to carry out a successful work of art?")
