I've just joined the group and would like to introduce myself.
Although I am not teaching in a school now - I did for a while in Italy
I do feel that most artists are teachers as well.
(Also, I have had private pupils work with me in my studios
in Austria and Arizona and almost always enjoyed the experience...)
I don't believe in teaching students to copy a teacher.
The correct use of tools, of course, must be taught, but
what is most important is the ignition of the creative spark.
Thank you very much.
