Sorry. Haven't heard of the book you mentioned but what DID catch my eye is that you teach high school level art....which I do too.
This site is great and the messages that are sent in by this group are so informative...but I'd like to see more ideas that can be used at the high school level. After 22 years of teaching, I'm sure you have your favorites. Any chance of sharing, trading, discussing those that you've found to be "sure winners"?

Subject: Looking for Book
Hi Guys!! I just got my schedule and budget cuts for next school year. Thought I'd share. I teach high school, 9- 12 th grades. I have more kids scheduled for my classes per class period, more classes per day - longer schedule- (and more expensive to run classes), and more preps each day and 4 of my class period subject matters change semester to semester next year.... need I say more? My budget is the lowest it has been since my second year of teaching ... that was 22 years ago. Actually, in my second year I had $500 more to spend, which leads me to my question. I'm looking for a book that I know exists, I just haven't been able to locate it. It's called "Creating Art From Air". I know it's out there, somewhere, because my school board seems to have read it cover to cover. Anyone know where I could purchase this book - with my own money ,of course!!!!??? If I don't laugh at this absurdity I'd scream.... :-) Have a good day.... Donna
