Thanks for feedback. I think that they are great also, so it's nice to know
that someone else sees them as I do. Not all of the art teachers use them in
our district, even though they all have a set. I could never understand why. I
do not use them on a weekly basis but often enough to know that they really get
the students to look and ask questions about art. betsy
