The idea of the musicians suggested another for me: well known sports,
movie stars, politicians, scientists, astronauts etc. who are accomplished
artists as well. I have a middle school program filled with boys who think
anything not sports oriented isn't worth anything. A project which focuses
on well people who actively practice and enjoy the arts may produce good
results especially if I can find reproductions of their work for display
along with a biography and photograph. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
