I have some questions which might help focus your planning...what is your
ultimate goal for these students AFTER they leave you? That they become
appreciative viewers of art? That they will be able and motivated to express
themselves visually even if they are not "talented"? If they are unlikely to ever
make art again after this class is a drill in the Principals a useful goal?
Just wondering. Good luck to sounds like quite a challenge...
