Numo,
I couldn't agree with you more. However, I am not sure that the typical
classroom or regular teacher shares your ideal or passion for what that
'salt map' can really be. Sure there are exceptions, I have known some
really wonderful regular classroom teachers who do understand.
Unfortunately though I have met more who see Art as merely a time
filler, a break for them and / or only see connections which are
subserviant to their own curriculum goals. Interconnectedness is most
definitely the way we learn best. I think though as art educators we
need to protect that the opportunity for art education will always be
there for children and young learners.... and not a watered down version
of a greater opportunity they should be entitled to as creative
learners.

In Art & Life,
