In responnse to henry and suxzanne......
for high school students i agree with suzanne ,we have to let them
understand the new developments in culture ,awareness of tech./changing
When i look at a work I like i find out about the artist and then more about his or her philosopht/y....I enquire/children enquire through play mostly
and then later like us they go into a deeper thing/it's hard to get the
driven inquisitive ,enquiring kid....into all things related to art.
Appreciation of anything would suit me ...ie themselves /theeir families/
nature/life...art will come to them ..I mean the whole of what that word
means...not that I know....when they want it to..
