Susan asks:
Do you have pulblished materlas that you are using on the subject of drawing
and painting-with ESL students? Please send me the writing titles by Eisner
and Kellogg.

The Eisner title is: "Reading, Writing, and the Arts"; the Rhoda Kellogg
title is: "Analyzing Children's Art". She is also author of another book
which you may find of value: "Children's Drawings, Children's Minds."

Personally, at this point, I rely less on published materials than on
intuition and personal insight. I just jump in and do it. The secret is to
not rely on explaining what is required or what you are doing, and rely more
on demonstrations and modeling. There's too much talking in education. Art
is accessing the part of our brain that thinks in pictures before it was
usurped by an educational system that taught us to think with words.
