We did caricatures with large heads and little bodies..I'll send some if I get the chance. These were a huge success.

Sounds like a great technique....Jerry, I would be happy to use your
techniques for perspective drawing....jpeg would be fine.
I am opening a brand new middle school and we ran out of money quickly.
The bond money helped us to get the room equipped, yet my regular
budget was slim pickings! We are the cowboys and will have a fund
raising day called the STAMPEDE in October. Does anyone have any great
ideas for fund raisers other than painting faces?? My supply list is
hurting and I will be using the art club to help me raise money.

I would be glad to share my perspective plans with anyone interested.
I have already recieved a few requests. I can either attach the plan
a PDF (best quality) or Jpg. Let me know what you prefer. By the way,
this plan works with 5th grade to high school, especially if your
students have not encountered perspective drawing in any substantial
in the past. Here is another idea for secondary level, which I shared
couple years ago on this list: Give each student a sheet of plexi
and an erasabe or sharpie marker. Let them loose in their environment
(always risky!) and have them draw what they see through the glass
directly on the glass. They can erase
unsucessful attempts or transfer decent results to regular paper back
at the art room. It is like drawing from life with a different twist.
