Perhaps you were a rebel in school (I wasn't). Perhaps you were hard to reach and distant (I wasn't). Perhaps, even still, there was one teacher who just oozed cool that made a connection with you. Perhaps she 'got you', and gave you a rare opportunity to express yourself. Perhaps he encouraged your creativity when few others did. Perhaps that describes your art teacher (it does mine).
It's Back To School day, so lets give it up for our art teachers. In the comments below, share an art teacher who made an impact on your creative life. Or maybe you are the art teacher, and can share a memorable experience where you awakened some creative spark in a student?
