Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. —William Butler Yeats
Festival season has come to an end once again. Solitary walks along Crystal Cove have been reinstituted. Best of all, now that the long festival days are ended, there is time to spend pondering many things left on back burners throughout the summer.
Having served on the Sawdust Art Festival's ad hoc 2010 Committee for the past year, art education has been in the forefront of my thinking a lot of the time. As I mentioned in a previous column, our committee had worked for a year on a fundraiser to benefit the art education fund at the Sawdust Festival. I am pleased to hereby announce that it was a phenomenal success.
