"If teaching is art, then it comes down to the question of how artists hone their craft, and not only that, but how art itself progresses to more advanced and complex stages. Artists working in isolation, I would suggest, do not progress on average as fast or as far contrasted with artists working as members of communities of artists. Why is that so? Transfer of information. Artists share technique. They talk about it. They view others’ work and emulate what they like about it. They build on what has come before them, they partake of and contribute to advances in the technologies used by their art. If this were not so, art would not progress. The advent of perspective in European painting in the 13th and 14th centuries would not have evolved into what it is today – it would have to be re-created by each artist. And paint would still be the iron oxide, black manganese, and other mineral pigments used on cave walls by pre-modern-humans. And how do we account for art classes? And teaching schools?" -Aaron Eden
