This is a negative memorable experience, but hopefully it has had more =
of a positive impact with my students. I was in the 7th grade in a =
Health & PE class (out art teacher had quit in the 3rd grade because of =
some rowdy boys). Anyway, the teacher was doing a line art project with =
us; we drew right angles with an ink pen on a piece of construction =
paper, marked equally spaced dots on the lines and then used a needle & =
thread to make the "curved" lines. I decided I didn't like the way the =
drawn lines looked, so I worked in reverse so they wouldn't show on the =
front. The teacher came up and snarled about how I couldn't be content =
to do something the right way.

Now, when a student of mine wants to use a different method than what =
I've suggested, I say "GO FOR IT!

I did end up with a wonderful art teacher when I made it to high school. =
Her name was Shirley Tyner and it was a brand new school with a brand =
new art room. I was in heaven!
