Why don't we enroll our young children in weekly private painting lessons, and require that they practice painting everyday, not painting whatever they like, but painting with the proper technique so that they can learn to perfectly replicate the works of the masters?
Why don't we encourage our children to play with musical instruments the way we encourage them to play with paint and chalk and clay?
Why are we so rigid in our approach to some art forms and so relaxed in our approach to others?
What is our purpose in offering these lessons to children?
Why is it that so many of us quit our lessons at some point in childhood and never pick up a brush or instrument again?
