The Devil

This is the Devil. Why? Because he’s everywhere preventing things. There is NO ART FUNDED by the government in the public schools of San Francisco!!! “frivolous” is what sarah Palin calls it. Making Art is about learning to have an inner dialog with yourself where there is no good or bad, right or wrong) and this activity is NO WHERE in the schools. How are these kids who are taught to memorize the right answer and then fill it in in the bubble on the ever more frequent tests, ever going to be able to decide anything for themselves?
I interviewed today to be “an artist in the schools”. I will get paid (if you can call it that) a small fraction of what I normally get paid to teach a class. Wow. the payback is elsewhere.
