And Joe, don't by any means, let it go down the drain!!! Use paper towels
and put it in the trash!!!!! Or better yet, save it in baby food jars, or
in (free at Click Camera) used film canisters (hold about an ounce).

I am in need of some advise. I have committed my beginning high school
students to an art contest/show where each student will do an acrylic
painting on a 24 x 30 stretched canvas. The sponsoring organization got
supplies donated to the teachers so this was an opportunity to receive free
supplies and I got 79 canvas, acrylic paints, lots of brushes, markers and
other assorted supplies. When I signed up I didn't realize that I would
receive such a nice donation, it is a bit overwhelming. The paintings the
students have to do is "Their Hero in Action". They have to paint someone
who is a living person or has lived that they feel is their hero. Now this
is a beginning art class so the skill levels vary greatly. Therefore, I am
having a hard time figuring out how to approach this lesson so that the
student won't feel overwhelmed. If you have any suggestions please send
them on I would love the help.
One other question. How do you keep students from wasting paint? For
example squeezing a whole puddle of paint when they only need a little bit
and then washing the what they don't use the drain?
