Hi Eddie Nice nickel’s worth. Please read my posting about the
Craft Conference. Maybe we can combine the subject lines.
I believe in learning institutes developing in students the skills
to make their ideas. At this young age what experience can they
draw on? what issues might they dream up to compensate?
I’d rather they took rather less grand concepts and developed the
ability to apply skills as they realise them into objects. then
they have learnt a complete process.
Later they can add techniques and get some world experience, so
each time they do that whole process they will develop their whole
creative process into something solid.
At the moment students learn the hidden agenda is the wackier the
better. Too bad about those who can skillfully and accurately make
into objects their more sober ideas.
After all that’s ‘where they are’.
