setting up a for profit. independent program.

Email them via the website.

Mona Brooks also has traveling workshops so you can

Do a search for Monart and I think it comes up. It is
bookmarked on another computer - if you can't find it,
let me know.

I am tyring to figure out where/how I can make it fit
into my curriculum. The fifth grade teacher teaches
them the step-by-step overlapping oval approach, so I
think this would be a way to get the 6th graders to

attempted to use it with lower elementary, but ran out

the classroom and did one copying exercise, but we
never made it to an actual still-life.

I hope you will keep us posted on how it goes. There
was some dialogue a while back that should be
available in the archives.
