I think you really "hit the nail on the head." When teachers are oh so
critical, it is usually because of fear of failure as a teacher. I think
we have to remember how long it takes to incubate an idea and reinforce
skills. I try really hard not to ever draw ona student's work unless
someone is so frustrated that a few quick lines might save things. I like
to work beside a student or in m y sketchbook. it may be easier just to
take the brush and "fix" something but does it help the student? I know I
don't want someone messing with my work no matter how bad it is. Some of
our work will not be good. Right?
