I teach art at the elementary level and I am always having kids ask me if I
can draw something for them such as a horse or dog to put in thier
composition. My standard answer is "if I draw you a horse, everyone will
expect me to draw something for them". Sense I can't have a horse come to
the class room to pose, I will go to the CD and pull one up on the screen
so the student will SEE how to draw one. I believe in coaching students
rather than drawing on their art. Much like a good athletic coach shows
athletes how to perform better, I point out what would make the students
art better. What is the use of an art teacher if the students just make
art the way they want?
