I think by far the best art ed publisher is David Publications. They have
several good textbooks for each age level, and at the high school level
they have some which are more subject specific---the drawing one is very
good. They have a great catalogue which I think you can order thru the
net, I know they have an 800 # which you can get from information. (No, I
don't work for them!!!)
>From time to time I ask for copies of books and videos to preview. There
is no charge for this except you have to pay postage to return them. Most
of the publishers will allow you to do this as they want to sell you whole
sets of the books. I'm not advocating copying ideas from these books in
any way, but you might be able to discern if any of the books were of value
By all means get the teachers edition if you can't afford the set for all
your students--who can? Having the one book will provide you with a wealth
of ideas for curriculum planning as well as individual projects.
Always take time to stop and smell the roses... and sooner or later,
you'll inhale a bee.
