Aesthetic Realism; or, Why I Love Teaching Art

I taught art history and studio art in New York City high schools for over 24 years using the Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method. My love for art and teaching continues to increase as I'm able to see how art is related to one's life and the whole world. The means is in this great principle of Aesthetic Realism stated by it's founder and the 20th century educator, Eli Siegel:
The world, art, and self explain each other: each is the aesthetic oneness of opposites.
