In 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.’)
