Re: using student examplesFor the ones of you who do not let your students see examples, student work, photos, etc. for reference...can you answer the question below?

If your students want to draw something specific...say, animals... and when they draw their animals from imagination or memory...and they are upset because their drawing is not what they want it to look like...and they want to learn to DRAW the animal better and they can SEE that their work is not in correct proportion or maybe it doesn't look like what they are attempting to draw and they know it and they get discouraged ...and there are no zoos close by...but they WANT to learn to draw these animals...then what do they do?

Do you deprive them of looking at pictures of animals or insist that their drawing is fine even though it is not what they are trying to achieve.

How do you solve a problem like this...
