Teaching art: if it’s good enough for elephants…

By October 11, 2008culture

Picture_1In my recent discussion of the rogue artist Banksy I may have mentioned that I think that we need to do a better job of teaching art in schools. Ken Robinson makes the point more eloquently than I could. But this video also makes the point (after all why aren’t more kids encouraged to do what this elephant was encouraged to do?).

And if you want to read a fascinating story about an elephant check this out. (note that many of the Amazon reviews of this book proclaim it ‘was the greatest book the reviewer ever read.’)


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
