Public education and the fine arts ain't friends, not so much. It's a wonder that people
go on to have careers in the fine arts. Public education does not encourage students to
become painters,potters, jewelers, printmakers, portrait painters and all of the rest
in the visual arts. DANG!!!
It's just wrong headed thinking. Freshman forever, those, who don't think one can
make a career of the fine arts. People should have the work they want, not some job they have to take. There ain't nothing wrong with being happy at one's work.
Public ed and the fine arts will never see eye to eye. Too bad , too sad.
One thing for sure, inspite of the oil and water feeling about art, real artists will prevail.
