I believe you will find that these books will work well with your
conceptual teaching. You will find that you can use the creative triggers to
inspire wonderful solutions (re: response to having students conceptualize
through preliminary drawings of ideas in your jewlry, and metalsmithing
classes). I do the same with my high school level art students. It is amazing
the results you can get by giving students the time to work out their ideas.
It also allows you to introduce more sophisticated concepts which they are
trully capable of accomplishing.
