Re: art teachers/artists

Quoting Alexander Lihl <>:

Alexander, did you see the question about teacher preparation in other
countries. The list wants to know and compare how you were educated in
Germany. I have spent timet there with teachers, both new and the
"Fachleiter" and observed some mentoring, but strictly as a
journalist. It seemed to me that you all get more classroom management
help and more assistance with teaching protocols when you are in your
two-year training period. Is this the case (I only saw the former
East). Also, do art teachers continue their own art practices? Are
they encouraged to be artists primarily or teachers first? I also had
a question that I posed to the list a while ago about the role of
censorship in the art rooms of schools. Is that an issue for you?
Thanks in advance. Cheers
