RE: Tracy Conley needs your help

Makes me think of a project I did a long time ago - the kids loved it. After teaching basic 3-d shapes and shading, I had the kids draw a junk food meal. Burgers & chicken nuggets = sloppy cylinders, fries are long rectangles, etc. Include the cups of Coca-cola, napkins, paper wrappings or boxes. It was an easy way to help them to think about common things in a new way. The drawings were great!

        Maybe you should get really basic.. Start with simple projects involving lines and shapes. Go to the library and find some very basic books in the youth section that deal with the elements of art. Bring in art books. Draw things that might interest them, like animals. Check out the Mona Brooks Drawing with Children books. That might give you some starting point.
        Good luck. Janet
