My PRAYER for the National Day of Prayer- The Return of Excellent Art- and Teachers Who Teach the "OLD " /Classical Techniques

As one who was fortunate enough to have had instructors who taught the classical art forms-
I say - THANK YOU - my Elementary  art teacher & my  High School art teacher--
and- since MUSIC is also Art- I thank my Elementary music teacher and my HS choral instructor..
and my piano teacher-she put up w./ me for 10 years!!

TO THE CLASSICS!!

I found a wonderful site -The Art Renewal Center -
Why Realism--
http://www.artrenewal.com/articles/Philosophy/ArtScam/artscam.php

After reading the above  link-I got affirmation that realistic art is the only way to go--and I also found out about the plight of Rembrandt's great work- The Night Watch:

Night Watch by Rembrandt- was not 'accepted'  during his time -so- it was cut up- and hung in a gym--
It goes to show that the scam /galleries / and "art" critics  - even back then- were just out to make money and did not know what they were doing--
The Nightwatch

Thank you Remus

I just read a story on teaching - in the UK.

The title was how they'd be offering $ to Working physics Phd's to come into the classrooms and teach. They'd also bring current solutions and problems into the classroom. What better way to learn.

What would we do here if anything? No doubt it would be focused on affirmative action.
