re: how to display work

coming from an art ed student's point of view, how about making it part of the
routine in your classroom that a piece isn't "done" unless its suitable for
presentation? this way, it seems, our students would learn matting/mounting
early on and get into the habit. plus, at the end of the year, things would
be ready to go for a show, and don't forget about stressful situations when a
community group decides to do something "artsy" and asks for fifty pieces from
"the children" for next week. it occured to me that we might waste materials
by fixing up things we have no intent to display, but i disagree with "waste"
as a description of any piece. even if its not used in a show, our students
will feel more pride in their polished, professional looking work. and
they're more important to me than any old show. :)
