Marsh, You sound terrific!!! May I add another suggestion to your
book list that I think you and your students would enjoy. It's 200
Projects to Strengthen Your Art Skills for Aspiring Art Students by
Barrons Educational Series, just released in April. It has a lot of
fun and new art project ideas. If I do say so myself ;-)
