Wondering the World: Experiences with Culture, Performance, and Learning
Kelin, Dan A., II
Teaching Artist Journal, v6 n2 p97-106 Apr 2008
A teaching artist reflects on his travels and work across the South Pacific and India. He concludes that American culture views art as a commodity appreciated mostly for its personal entertainment value, and therefore judges the outcome of artistic endeavors rather than appreciate the purpose of such endeavors. His teaching experiences have challenged him to understand how art and culture play integral roles in peoples' lives and have the potential to enrich every one, sometimes in ways known only to the individual.
