Thanks for this thread. I just picked up a copy of this book tonight. It's
wonderful.
Do you think I'm crazy because I'm seriously thinking of reading this book to
my 8th graders (maybe with a slight tongue-in-cheek delivery). This is the "i
can't draw" grade for me.
   On another note, I'm wondering how many of us, besides me, tell students
that there's so much more to art and creativity than drawing. It's not that I
don't think drawing is important, but I worked with so many creative people
who "couldn't draw" (photographers, wardrobe stylists, makeup artists, t.v.
directors, etc), but were incredibly visual during my stint as an art director.
   This is probably why I do more design type projects with my junior high
kids.
