To take a different look at the controversy running through the list, I was
told two weeks ago that I can't pursue an MFA because I don't have my
bachelors in a studio degree (I have a BA in art education) The best I could
do without a BUNCH of leveling work is an MA. (This from a respected 4 year
university with good Masters and Doctorate programs in art.

So I guess it's artist's can't teach and teacher's can't do art! :P
