I get the same thing at the HS level. Much of this is solved by giving
each student a 12 x 18 sheet of manila paper on which to work on
thumbnail sketches. They have to work out their subject matter,
composition, and rendering techniques before going to the "good" paper
(which is actually just cheap white drawing paper from the district
warehouse, but I make it sound like really good stuff!) Doing the same
thing in sketchbooks helps, too. And I always remind them that I buy
special paper--it has TWO sides!
Hope this helps.
