If any of you have back issues of "School Arts," the September '97 issue has
a wonderful article titled "Art Warm Ups." This article details an ongoing
first-five-minutes-of-class activity that focuses student's attention on the
task at hand while contributing in a positive way to art-based,
interdisciplinary learning.

This is an activity that a friend of mine developed when her principal
mandated that all teachers on her campus should have at least one activity
that addressed writing objectives. What's most impressive about this
activity is that it helps kids to open their eyes to art interpretation.
