I hate when people touch other's artwork!!!!! I hated it when I was in high
school and college (yes, even college!) and I refuse to do it to my
students. I love the idea I got from this list last year about using tracing
paper - now I cut an entire pad at the beginning of the year. Then, when a
student is having trouble visuallizing a specific technique then I can
actually show the student the proper way without actually working on the
student's artwork.
