>8th graders will do fine with the Betty Edwards' upside down drawing. I have used it. There are several in the book but the best is the Stravinsky drawing by Picasso.

> to teach and the classroom teacher would like me to do something

> based on Betty Edwards 'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain' book.
> She used it for 9th and 10th graders. She put an upside down slide
> into the projector and had the students draw what they saw on 18 x 24
> newsprint with charcoal and kneaded erasers. Every 3 minutes or so
> she would focus in on the slide, making the image clearer and more
> recognizable. She did this until the image was clear and then place
> it the right way. She collected the kids work and then had a
> critique, explaining how important it was to draw from what you see
> and not what you think you see. I thought this would be a great demo
> lesson because it teaches an important lesson to students, but I'm
> worried that it may be too advanced for 8th graders, even though
