<< My question is how can you be an art teacher when you are taught the
Hunter style of teaching? If you follow Hunter, you end up with "school art."
Maybe I'm just way off track on this. >>
I think you are right on track. IMHO the Madeline Hunter's of the world are
one of the problems with education in general.

I am sorry you had people who stopped speaking to you when you decided to get
your credentials. I guess I was lucky. It was my BFA friends who recommended
that I add the Art Ed. major courses when my father said I needed to find
someone else to provide my meal ticket. :-)) In fact one of them was actually
an Art Ed major and I never knew it. In those days they did not teach the
first thing about marketing in the BFA programs. At least not at my school,
when I went through. I don't regret being steered toward teaching. But I do
wish I had been taught a little more about how to sell my work.
