 I am brainstorming a new project for my advanced art students and would like to have any creative input from you folks.  Here is my idea:  I would like to do a project which I will title "Camouflauge"-each student will have to create an illustration which shows objects/items camouflauged (spelling?).  Immediately I thought of insects on leaves but I would like to challenge them to include Surreal imagery or extreme realism.  Magrittes paintings of canvases within canvases come to mind as a reference.  I plan on having them work with rapidograph pens and ink.  They will need to use hatching, cross-hatching, stippling, etc. and have the option of choosing to add colored inks.  Ink washes could also be considered.Does anyone have any suggestions or references to beef up this lesson?KimBermudian Springs High SchoolYork Springs, PArobinsj
