You made an excellent point that I overlooked in my comments. I know that
supplies are dear and more than dear in a lot of situations. I know that
students need to learn to use the eraser. But I think that one sheet of paper
is all you get is somewhat disheartening. I am fortunate in that I have a
generous budget. I also get paper from a local publisher. I try very hard to
make my students to understand the virtue of the eraser. But at some point in
time it is necessary to throw the darn thing away. Or in my case put it in the
portfolio for consideration along with the finished piece. Of course I do have
my biggest problem with the students who come from teachers who tell them that
real artists do not use erasers!
