Thanks to everyone who sent me ideas! One I've used with great success is
having the students do a collage, incorporating some of their own daily
drawings, artwork, etc. Some even cut up the foamboard they used for
printmaking to add to their collage. Their collage projects made a type of
self-portrait of themselves as artists. It was fun and they look terrific!
Thanks again. Genie Holt, Tucson
