that many of them have difficulty expressing themselves both in actions and
in written words. Do you art teachers find the same thing in the visual
communicative arts? I realize that this ties into psychology and
socialization, yet it all seems to me to stem from the same roots.

I find that they do not want to think. When offered a project that demands
some input from their creative, or even just mnemonic powers, they seem
baffled. Education in schools is too rote, creative thinking is not
encouraged.
