    How many of you have encountered the following:Enter the truly talented
    student who has been told by previous art teachers that they don't need to do
    the lessons that the rest of the class is doing because they are talented and
    don't need it. These students have been allowed to go sit in a corner and do
    whatever they wanted for years. Then you get them and they know nothing about
    how to make good art. Frequently their untalented peers have begun to outdo
    them with the knowledge they have gleaned from doing the assignments in art
    class. Frequently their parents are in awe of their talent and don't
    understand why the grades suddenly drop below A+. Frequently they are a real
    pain in the patootsie until you get through to them.
    Just curious
