for Stephanie, who asked about vase/bowl design:
Some theme suggestions are 1)color schemes (earth tones, monochromatics,
etc.), 2) specific artist (a Magritte vase, a Haring, a Cassatt, etc.), 3)
"scapes" (seascape, cityscape, etc.)
for Christi, who is looking for home-schooled art texts:
Take a look at Mark Kistler's "Draw Squad". It's cartoony, but it does a
very good job with shapes, values and perspective. I've recommended it to
parents as a good gift item and have had positive feedback, including
having kids come in with the drawing they've done following the Draw Squad
lessons at home.
Hope some of these ideas help.
