Dear Friend,
We are all at different levels, life is diversified, You are DBAE which has
merits when it doesn't get too left brained and text booky. The other
teacher might be child centered rather that project, process centered. You
could check that out with her. Child centered was a 70's movement as far as
I am aware, it was psychological, don't push the child, let him/her find
his her own level and grow accordingly. Project, process was a bit later.
Both movements have merits, better than the cut and past assembly line art
which unfortunately many schools do because classes are so large and
material so scarce. I don't know what she does, but maybe you can learn
from her too. (unless it a real dum dum art class) In any event, you're
the new kid on the block and you have to fit within a system, a structure,
a social context which means that your world is not just art, it's
political too. Learn to live like you make sculpture, that is, in the
round. Love to hear how things go. Just to let you know, I did my masters
thesis on DBAE, I use it in conjunction with the child centered and process
approach.Sincerely, Diane L.
