I'm trying to think of how you can explain that it's not fair to ignore
the regular art curriculum. Couldn't you try to get the principal to allow
decorations, etc. to be an extra thing that students did on a bad day they
can't go on playground during recess or if they finish all their
work.Don't put all of this on one area.
