    Okay I'm off hold for awhile(to those I told) but I'll be on hold
    again soon.
    How about doing the (remington/russell??) statues. Small clay horses
    with cowboys on top. I have a set of three books on western painters
    (cowboys) remington, Russell and someone else??? Given to me by an
    old boyfriend born and raised in Montana. I've never done a project
    on them but have thought about the clay horse project. Perhaps after
    they do the clay project you could alternate kids pieces to draw, as
    a model for the class. Perhaps someone has a horse you could borrow
    and draw or go visit a stable and draw.
