Serve the Person

 

If the goal of art

education

is to reproduce

an image

that doesn’t

interest the maker

 

or

 

to  create a work

in a specific genre

that doesn’t

interest the maker

 

or

 

requires

the use of a material

that doesn’t

interest the maker

then we

as art educators

not only

are disregarding

the maker,

we are not

teaching art.

 

Art

at it’s core

is a personal

statement,

a personal view

a personal

journey…

 

Hence,

art education’s

focus should

be on a person

not on a lesson.

 

Lessons need to

serve the person.

The person

should never be

a slave to

the lesson.
