Re: Crazy Kids...funky doo's, and the need for a "Voice!"

Larry: Thanks for the thoughtful insight on students who are afraid to create
and on the teacher demonstrating artmaking in class. I realize that I need to
do more of that and how it's OK to make mistakes. When I've demonstrated and
made a mistake, the class laughs and it gives me an opportunity to crack a
joke or improvise or tell the class about "Happy Accidents" la Bob Ross.
Sometimes students feign helplessness or the inablility to create because
they want you to help them individually and "do it for them". Viva the class
demo! It's a great teaching strategy for us that we sometimes forget. I'll
check out and be on the lookout for self-portrait demo.
