<< I am interested in hearing what you actually mean by "knows how to teach"<
knows how to TEACH and he is a very accomplished artist.> I have been
teaching in our painting department for a couple of years now and I think a
lot about wheather I am doing a good job or not. So I would be interested
in hearing more about what people think makes a good studio teacher. Rosa
This is a great point to make! What counts as good teaching? Can you teach
good teaching? Is someone a better teacher because they went through a
teacher education program as a university?
I had painting teachers at the university who did things that violated all
the rules of Madeline Hunter, but from whom I learned wonderful things.
Perhaps that is why I learned wonderful things! Why is it that two students
can experience the same teacher and come away with entirely different
responses to that teacher?
I think the issue of the tradition of studio critiques and what counts as
good teaching in college/university art schools are related, but not entirely
the same issue.
