"Mastery is not about practising a style, or purchasing knowledge, or self-aggrandisement.

It is about practising an art, developing a pedagogy, and transcending the ego.

Teaching mastery is not about marketing "a style" to students who want paint-by-numbers instruction, simplistic knowledge, and self-validation.

The best teachers I know are those who seek to liberate their students from the restrictions of style, from the limits of knowledge, and from delusions of self."

- Ian Sinclair
