Reading this made me curious.... All the other teachers in my school =
B.S. degrees. I have a good-ol' Liberal Arts B.A. for my undergraduate=20
degree. How about you guys? Next question, many teachers are certified =
other areas, too. For example, I'm certified K-12 Art & Psychology. =
I teach in a jr. high school I don't think I'll ever get to use my =
cert. Too bad, because I think it goes along well with ART! ;-)

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes...
Art is knowing which ones to keep."=20

Art therapy techniques can be used in any art classroom. The most =
successful art teachers use a lot of psycoholgy when working with their =
students. At the time, however, the teachers are probably not even aware =
of it. There are a number of colleges with degree programs in art =
therapy. I think Maryland has a program.=20
