Hello to all on the list,
I'd like to pose a general question to the list. Were you an art
education major in college/university? If so, were you "looked down" upon
by other "serious" art majors -- those working on a BFA or MFA? Have you
had instances of having college or university professors in studio areas,
or "professional" artists stating opinions denigrating the art education
degree or art education as it's generally perceived in the public schools?

I read with interest Terry Barrett's questions and the responses
from the lists about critique experiences. I wonder how many of you who
responded were at the time of the critique, and were known to be by the
professor, art education majors? Recently an art education graduate
student at our college had occasion to be talking, in a social situation,
to an instructor of art at a local university. The art education graduate
student, who views her chosen career very seriously, was quite taken aback
with the opinions voiced by the art professor about the value of art
educators and art education. So, I'm just curious about other's views...
