You would be wise to do it yourself of course. It should require
about 1/2 a day. The
balance of the time might be used to introduce designs by MC Escher
to begin with
and finish the day by brain storming how each of them might adapt

I was lead art teacher my last three years in Kansas City, Kansas.
My job was
to develop inservice programs for the art teachers K-12. It's
important to give them
hands on stuff to make them happy campers. It's also important to
force them to
think and stretch the lesson in as many ways as possible.
