I teach 6,7,8th grade art in the east bay of San Francisco. In the back of
my classroom I have a library of books and many of them are how-to-draw
books like "How to Draw Monsters", "How to Draw Aliens", etc. as well as
biographies, movie making, art techniques, origami, and museum books.
Besides my standard "if you finish early" assignments, kids can go back and
thumb through these selections which I encourage. Among these books I also
have Kistler's book. Without fail, my kids bypass this book thinking it too
elementary for them. It's their choice, of course, but when given a chance
to decide on their own, they are not interested in looking at this book. I
find this fascinating as I had thought they would enjoy this book.You can
never second-quess these "buggers". Just thought I'd pass this along.
