    This is an interesting questions, because to become and art educator, you need proper amounts of experience in both studio arts and art history but they are essential to the function of my educational practices. I think it would be greatly beneficial and developmental in making both BFA/MFA students and art history majors more rounded in their fields if their college were to require some cross-curricular education into the surrounding majors. I think studio artists should study teaching as a component to their work(3 credits?); there is nothing here that couldn’t help grow their creative practice and the way their work interacts with the world. Art historians should take a couple of art classes, because again, it would enrich their work (6 credits?); can you imagine how much more one would appreciate looking at and teaching about lithograph prints if you had actually made one yourself…!
