Your discussion on product vs process gets a little tiresome at times

Of course, I believe that process is important and that the process is
the foundation that the final conclusion (product) of the artwork is
based. Process is critical.....

But lets be real - product is also important - if we only focus on
PROCESS - we can have lots of students processing all over the place
without a focus and goal in mind - I can say this because I TEACH, TEACH
TEACH students in the real world. What I am saying is that students,
like the rest of us, need a goal in mind. Teach the process -
demonstrate it, model it, let students experience - but keep high
standards and EXPECT them to produce something out of their process.
Sometimes I think we preach process to allow all of us (students and
teachers) off the hook to high quality art production in the studio.

Most respectfully,
