Product will eventually follow thinking, this maybe years, product could be
people. Product without the thinking is not art, regardless if it is not
made from construction paper. There are alot of products that are void of
thinking going in the the name of art. I would question their validity. I
don't know why producing artists is not art for those that responded this
way. I think your point is valid. By the way self centered artists are often
rotten teachers, their work is often questionalble as well. Susan in Ohio
