This is one of those ideas that happened totally by accident, as they often
do. I was walking by the ROTC room at the end of the day and found an entire
garbage can full of patent (sp) leather shoes. I couldn't resist, found a box
and started filling it up.Soon Sgt.Major caught me and explained that he had
lots of odd shoes with no mates and he would now deliver them to me.
We had so much fun with those shoes this year. We used them for reflective
drawings i the beginning and in every still life, but the best thing was
painting and decorating them. We had a car shoe, a military tank shoe, spiderman's
shoe., a shoe with a bloody leg etc They were our "cows of chicago".
I'm sorry I don't have pictures, but I wanted all the high school teachers to
be aware of this great resource. They were the hit of our art show.
I've just completed my 33rd year today and going strong thanks to all of you
