Art activity time ideas.


Date: Tue Aug 24 2004 - 20:24:57 PDT

Hi y'all,
     In my school we have an activity time on Friday afternoons for 40
minutes. Kids pick what they want to do. For the past 4 years, I have
taught Photoshop. The computer lab is becoming harder and harder to get
into at that time, and some other issues have arisen that seem to
indicate that it is time for me to dream up a new activity. In the
past, I have taught calligraphy, jean's jacket embroidery (or whatever
kind of clothes kids want to embellish with embroidery), and sewing
stuffed animals. These activities last for a trimester and then we get
new kids. That's another reason to drop the photography. In such a
short time, once a week, to teach photography and photoshop, we wouldn't
get very much done. I'm looking for a new clever idea that kids would
LOVE, but that I won't need to do a lot of prep for. Any ideas??
