Hi all you Art gurus out there.
Couple thoughts and some brain picking. I work in a non supportive HS
enviornment with less than stellar students. With the issue of art
materials Vandalism etc. I issue each kid in my classes a paint tray
clean and shiny ant the beginning of the year. I tell them that my
policy(and I give them a written contract to sign and date and a copy
for parents) is to have the same equipment back at the end of the course
in the same shape as I gave it out. If I don't recieve it I will expect
it to be replaced or paid for-I show the prices in Art catalogs. If all
else fails I will hold their grade till all accounts are settled. This
works for every piece of equipment. Stuff like X-acto knives used to
disappear-etc etc etc.I'm sure you've all been there. Guess what-the
vandalism has stopped in the years that I've been doing this. I know the
administration would have my head and butt if they knew this, but so
far I'm still intact. Although maybe a buttectomy might be good for
weight control. Hope this helps.

Someone had the post about the transfer image thing. Downloaded the
method but can't find it. Could someone send it to me? One that really
works? Did any one find out what zout is? -for cleaning brushes

Much appreciated
