Perhaps no single person has done more for art education than the South African born nun Sister Wendy. I was reminded of her last week while talking to artist Leslie Holt, who plays Sister Wendy videos in her art appreciation class.
Dressed in a habit, her head shorn, and speaking with a lisp created by her very large front teeth, Sister Wendy speaks with a passion for great art and beauty that is immediately engaging and even contagious.
Take a moment to check our her take on a broken bust at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and see if you aren't compelled to check out her other work.
