I have to agree with Diane on a specialist being better than the classroom
teacher doing it. At least the students with art in their blood get to see a
real artist and get some real information. We don't have classroom teachers
teaching art in SC. I'd almost forgotten what that was like. When I went
through school it means we made a papier mache' mask in the third grade and a
finger painting in the sixth. That was it. Oh I did get chewed out for doing a
drawing of my sixth grade teacher while she was reading to us. It looked just
like her. Maybe that was the problem. She wasn't particularly attractive. :-))
I would have felt like I had died and gone to heaven if a real artist had come
into our classroom. And I would probably remember to this day every word that
s/he said.
