Don't compare grammar with art, it's the old apples and oranges thing.
The other subject areas in school are not meant to teach creativity and
individually as the major concepts. With so many methods available to
teach skills in art, what we are saying is that we can teach correct
to see and draw without marking on a students work, that's all.
