Skills vs. Expression

I can recall many conversations around the placement of emphasis in the art classroom between teaching skill and expression- and finding balance.  I've recently been working on curriculum for my AP Photography class for next year, and familiarizing myself with the AP guidelines and goals. I'm looking at an old teacher's guide right now, and there is one sentence that I really like in an example class syllabus:

Skill is learned as the facility or vehicle through which individual expression is realized.

Yes. That captures it.
