Teaching the Arts
There are a lot of counterbalances in teaching the arts.
- being an artist vs being a teacher
- the sublime of the arts discipline vs learning basic fundamentals
- encouragement vs tools to make the work better
- the student’s intention vs requirements of the assignment
I’m looking for a place where the two aren’t necessarily balanced. One may be exerting more force in a particular situation but together there is a wonderful place of relaxation and suspension where they support each other.
