look at Woody Duncan's site for his "Living Artists" lesson plan and links

At some point I will create a web page for this list. Many of them are on
my American Artists' page ( ).
There are also additional names on the American artist page. I guess you
could add a whole new group of names if you consider illustrators of
children's books......LOTS of living artists on that list.
