  2. Gosh I wish I were at liberty to contemplate investing thousands ๐Ÿ˜
  3. I'm interested to know the popularity of painters๐Ÿค” Which painters are the most popular amongst the Aby community? I'm fond of Toulouse Lautrec and Degas ( for the obvious associations with dance). But I think I prefer these because they were introduced to me when I was a very young child. Edvard Munch is next in line with The Scream. Such as angst ridden work depicts the way I sometimes feel at work with my boisterous ballet pupils. I feel as though I am silently screaming in my head๐Ÿ˜ฌ Keen to know yours๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Those who can't, teach

  15. Those who can't, teach

    Is there any mileage in the idea that teachers are less accomplished artists? The expression, those who can't, teach seems to suggest so.
  16. Those who can't, teach

    Oh that's interesting Gates. You believe artistic expression is instinctive. Do you think that a non trained artist is commensurate with a graduate of a prestigious art school?

    Considered feedback Ray and some good points.. Lovely๐Ÿฆ‹
  18. Oceana, drawings to color!

    Colouring can be reminiscent of our childhood but intensely relaxing for adults. How does childhood colouring differ to adult colouring? Is it simply to do with the complexity of the design? Nice work J๐Ÿฆ‹
  19. Those who can't, teach

    Interesting comments. I ran a dance studio for 17 years and prior to that worked as a performer and choreographer in fringe. I now run a children's ballet school. Many performers supplement their performance work with teaching work. For many teaching is merely a way to supplement income. However there are amazing teachers who have skills performers simply don't and could never possess. It takes absolute dedication to be good at one or the other. It is unusual to be a sublime artist and a superlative teacher at the same time. Great teachers are sometimes the reason why some students become wonderfully successful artists in their own right. Teachers and artists enjoy an inextricable relationship. Teachers are indispensable and provide the bedrock necessary to nurture the professional artists of today and tomorrow. Passionate teachers are inspired by the curiosity students display while learning and students are motivated by the encouragement and support offered by teachers. Both have an integral role in the arts, and interdependently serve to inspire the other.
