Oh my goodness, I swear to you that this was like reading about my art club
EXACTLY! That is really funny! I let the kids pick what they want to do
and they know the budget, and then I sort of guide them into a project or
two that I know they would really like. The only difference with mine was
that I cut the number off at 16 students, and they had a little lab fee
which payed for all the supplies. Good luck, as was said, the first year
is kind of a test year!
I teach elementary, and I have an art club. I limit it to fifth graders.
