Does Practice Make Perfect?

Posted on September 03, 2014

In grade school, we practiced cursive until our fingers were numb. Repetition was a key to success. Hard to forget the letters, words, and phrases written on lined paper designed to ensure that tall letters – you know, l, d, h, and b – were high enough and letters that dropped down – q, y, p, and j – were low enough.
Even though the merits of cursive are debated today, there’s something reassuring about repetitive actions and behaviors . . . but, does practice make perfect?

Over the next few days – for the thirty-ninth time – the Woodson Art Museum will celebrate the opening of Birds in Art and welcome artists from around the world, members and guests, and the community at large to the all-new 2014 exhibition.
