ralph goings interview
Actually, yes. That's when it really began, because in – well, in the – I guess in the eighth grade, the teacher didn't really – oh, I don't know quite how to put it – she didn't present anything as an art lesson or anything like that. It was just a matter of having materials there available – paper and pencils and pens and that kind of thing – and just sort of free-form – actually, looking back on it, it seems like it was a way for her to kill time until she got to the next real lesson, whatever it happened to be.
