A Professor of Fine Arts wrote me and explained that she incorporates art history into her studio classes availing the students to techniques and thoughts from earlier eras. She will surely agree that hands on is the best way to acquire knowledge. I say ” Beat it into them.” The only thing that they need to do is think, paint, think briefly. Then again paint, paint and go to bed; no TV. This is what separates the men from the boys.
As an Art Professor of Art education it is your duty, conferred upon, leared by the College of Art Menstration, to activate the notion that the study of art history forges sucess. Professors use it unflinchingly, positively to build their student’s vocabulary, the tools of mysterious, non-meaningful expressions of flotsy, but remember its their insights which separate the men from the boys alright.
Another question. How do you get rid of painting ridges when using acrylics?
What? You don’t, do not remove the ridges, either incorporate, by practing your strokes or switch mediums. You do know this is not a studio course so I wouldn’t tell you if I did know.
What do I mean? Use watercolors for example. Oh you students… First year, how nice, yes I do mean watercolors.
Ah, please hold your questions until after class.
What another hand? No more questions, yes, Christmas break is lovely. Good work, you’re excused until tomorrow.
Does that mean that you can watch TV? Goodness, I’ll repeat myself. Just this once, no more questions. A buzz is activated through the room, Students, shut up. Leave.Yes you may. Good by.
Educators,as seen by the student’s behavior it is up to you to straight jacket their minds to focus, to cuss, etiquette is so important. They must be able to enter Soethby’s, the Louvre, Workman Arts. Pound it ino their mallable brains, no not figurativly but manually. These are valuable insights which shape boys into men.
Furthermore go ahead and drop all women from your student lists. Art historians note there are less woman painters than men. Why? They are not as good. This separates the girls from the men.
Are there any questions before I dismiss class?
What? No, in the art world. Yes, you may watch TV. What about? Art. Leave , leave.
Oh I heard that you think that I’m overzealous, I think not.
Let’s end now, on this note . Wait, please, do prepare for a short quizz on Monday. You are the forgers of these shallow …Are there any Meaningful Thoughts or Concepts Left ?
