Art as therapy produces bad art. (James Fitzgerald)

James Fitzgerald - From the Problems category:

James Fitzgerald - From the Teaching category:

-Oral history interview, 1965...
Most of the artists there were practicing artists, and they weren't interested in a teaching schedule where all their days were broken up... the artists were happier when they had time for their own work. (James Fitzgerald)
