POETRY IS EASY...:

David Hockney is always right and always wrong (Richard Dorment 03 Jan 2012 The Telegraph)

It's what he said later in the interview that I find so moving. "I used to point out, at art school you can teach the craft; it's the poetry you can't teach. But now they try to teach the poetry and not the craft.'' He's saying that students used to be taught how to draw perfectly at the expense of their individuality. Now scores of students graduate from art colleges believing that everything they do or touch or say can be labelled a work of art but they couldn't draw a rabbit if you held a gun to their heads.

...craftsmanship is hard.
