Thanks Judy for posting more lessons for us. I have some interesting news
about the x-ray lesson I did with kdg. My son has been working for Roylco
(they make art products and sell to companys like Sax and Nasco)since Nov.
doing product and design. He just graduated with a studio arts degree. He
can't believe someone is paying him to draw and make things. He gets to
make the mock-ups for their catalog photos and has taken some of the
photos. Anyway, he gave me the pad of little people I used in the x-ray
lesson and when I showed him what we had done, he shared it with his boss
and now they will be making a new product--the little people shapes
already connected to a black piece of paper to do the x-ray drawings. They
also have another new product that I got samples of to field test.They
make big round pieces of diffusing paper but now have started making it in
shapes. My son did the drawings for butterflies, moths and dragon flies
already cut from the diffusing paper.He brought me some to try.So I had my
students fold the paper, draw the lines and trace them on the other side
and then use watercolor paints or watercolor crayons or washable markers.
They turned out great. We used warm or cool colors. So my students are
getting to do product testing and I'm getting supplies and the company
gets feedback from a real classroom. All good!
