The Pioneer Press had a nice story on Sunday about Wisconsin's art educator of the year, John Jaskot. He feels "art educates the whole child." To quiet their minds while the kids do art he turns on MPR's classical music station. (Yes!)
"I like rock, jazz and some country, but classical music is best for doing art," Jaskot said.
Seems like it rubbed off on them, too. When a substitute teacher put on a rock station one day the kids said they preferred classical. (Yay!)
