How about designing cars? My boys always love detailed perspective work,
too, and they always want to do plaster. I don't have any all boy classes,
but all of mine are boy-heavy-and have been since I came back to high
school. Go figure. Linda

Subject: 'All boys' class...
I've got an "all boys class" for the first time ever. I'm going to call
them the "the young men's art class"... They are all at either level Art
III or Art IV.
I'm trying to write up a curriculum for lessons that I think they will
We started out with a "visual autobiography collage". I try not to get into
any complicated lessons for the first two weeks of school...because it takes
that long to finalize our class lists.
Next we're doing wood cut printing, then scratchboard...probably some paper
How about some other good "hands on" ideas that you think a class of all
boys would like...
Actually...when I think about it, "hands on" is pretty redundant...since
visual art IS hands on.
