Re: High School: drawing in a crowded room


Date: Wed Mar 23 2005 - 10:05:36 PST

I'm not a HS teacher, but I have space issues in my room. I have a
rolling cart that I use for storage underneath, and I set up still lifes
on top of it a few times a year. I can push it into the center of the
classroom and kids can form a circle around it as they draw on drawing
boards. The other teacher has one as well. Hers is a bit higher. It's
great because you can push it over to the side of the room when your
still life group is not there. I also have a rolling paper cart in my
room, the kind for six rolls of kraft paper. I put a board from our
slab roller on top of it and set up a still life on that that I keep at
the side of the room. If I need another location, I set up a small one
on a counter around the perimiter of the room. The one that rolls out
into the class is my fav though. It does challenge you to set up a
still life that works from any angle, but I think that's kind of fun.
Judy has a photo of some of my recent still life set ups on the cart. I
do these with my 3rd graders.
