Well said and I believe that we all teach some of the modern approach, but in
our advanced classes where this can be a stepping stone to thier future. I
have some students doing some great free form things and expressing
themselves with reckless abandon but they are well schooled in the
fundementals of art . There by making art because of their knowledge fo
braking the rules as uposed to just doing it to be cool.
