"All Teachers are Artists, but not all Artists can Teach."

<<< - Promoting Art in Education where people learn about their community through the interpretation of images, symbols, and signs - including language. As an educator with Pre-K to Grade 12 experience in private, progressive independent schools and institutions, it is necessary to promote visual literacy and encourage dialogue towards a better understanding of the world around us by including the Arts in Education. The tools that artists and art teachers use are the same: the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design. In this way, Painting is a Language; and Drawing, is like Writing. - >>>

"Writing, integral to any elementary school curriculum, is encouraged by learning to draw and recognize different shapes. Art skills in early childhood development are applied in all subject areas - just as reading,writing, and arithmetic are applied in many facets of adult life with various degrees of mastery. As they grow older, young adults are able to make intelligent decisions regarding signage and they also become more versatile integrating imagery into their lives." International Art Education V2.3
