Okay I'm off hold for awhile(to those I told) but I'll be on hold
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.
