Transcript The Art Of Teaching The Humanities and Fine Arts Department has developed a national reputation in art education, due to instructors like Derek Boshier. Boshier was born in Port- smith, England and educated at the Yeovil School of Art in Somerset and the Royal College of Art in London. As a child in elementary school, he was not a model student. "In England in the '50s, every child in the country had to sit for an exam called the "eleven plus exam", which was meant to separate all children into two streams of education, one academic, the other technical and manual ... Two weeks after sitting for the exam, the headmaster read out a list of successful student candidates that would go on to academic school at the local grammar school, probably 15 out of 50. My name was not on the list. But, at mid-morning, I was asked to go see the headmaster. I thought/Oh, God, what have I done now!' Nobody ever saw the headmaster." "He asked me to sit down and said, 'As you know, your name was not read out as a successful candidate to the grammar school. Actually, your name was on the list. But, we thought there had been a typing error'." In 1963, he returned to England and began a teaching career. He has been teaching ever since. Boshier received tenure in 1987 and is now an associate professor. Because the British system does not give many sabati- cals, and his request for a sabatical two years ago was turned down, he has taught continuously since 1963 and prefers to think of himself as an artist who teaches, rather than a teacher who does artwork. According to Boshier, the art department should push for better working conditions. The facilities are restricted and delapidated. This is coupled with the lack of equipment and air conditioning. Still, alumni are active nationally and internationally. Boshier has helped to improve the university's image by continuously showing his work since 1961. Los Angeles and Houston are both running exhibits. Last year he was awarded a $15,000.
