A Matter of the Art

Someone recently told me that, in their opinion, the true mission of a teacher is to inspire people to see things in a new way and to think. If this is the case (and I believe it is) then artists, creators and performers may be some of our greatest teachers, and art—no matter its medium—some of our greatest lessons made…

Ichabod Crane, Spring Fancies, Beethoven’s Fifth, simply stowed away and abandoned as a generation of Draperites passed away or moved on. With the relocation of the elementary school from the old Draper Park School to the new Draper location off Fort Street, the…

The Art of Acquiring Art
