Re: Privacy Law again was RE: Keeping a sketchbook--high school

Thanks Kim for the important information on this subject.
Also something I wanted to clarify on the binder sketchbooks that I use.
It probably seems real silly to cut off the metal coil part that binds that
sketchbook together, but we had lots of sketchbooks left over, so I had to cut
the coil off. It would definitely be cheaper to just have paper cut to size
and use it in the binder, unless you like a certain grade or type of sketch
paper that is in the sketchbooks. I definitely recommend the binders after
having used them last year. We're thinking on the same wave- length Sid!
