<< Will those people bring in an elephant for the students to draw? And,
more importantly, will they clean up after it???
Need a BIG pooper scooper for this one! Thanks for the laugh!
I have kids start a morgue file in a file folder. I have a huge file cabinet
of images that I have been collecting for years. There is a mix of photo and
life for class work that is important at the beginning levels. The
'life/imagination only' happens with the more experienced, confident
students. That's where we want them all to get to, but some are very
satisfied to only copy. This is the first year that I've had any input into
who will be in the Art 3 & 4 classes, so I'm excited about the ones I've
given permission to - there will be those who will still be dumped in there,
but not so many! Deb W
