<<One example of our
differences would be we did 3-D van Gogh bed rooms and I showed them
how to make
the room and the bed. Decorating the walls and making chairs, plants,
televisions etc had to come from them. I gave lots of materials to work
with. My
Colleague on the other hand made templates for tables, chairs, beds and
dressers. >>

I cannot fathom how the teaching method referenced above has anything
at all to do with art making...but it would be a great way to create an
"art" factory, where all the "products" were close to identical. If
art is to be of any use in education it needs to be about something
more than being able to follow directions.
