Ideas needed for concept enhancement


Date: Fri Nov 26 2004 - 13:23:09 PST

hello all,
I am trying to think of an art concept that I can use to employ concept
enhancement with. It is a strategy that helps students really grasp an idea. My
problem is that there is this Always, Sometimes, Never feature that is really
throwing me for a loop. For instance: take weaving, the concept is to get them to
understand that a weaving is the interlacing of materials to form a piece of
fabric. Always there are vertical and horizontal strings, always there is a
loom of some sort used, always there are knots tied at either end to secure the
fabric. Sometimes other materials are used besides string, and sometimes
designs and patterns are woven into the fabric. But never????? What is never found
in a weaving? It seems pretty silly to say that drawing is never a
characteristic of weaving. Can anyone out there help me out? What topic in art has an
always, sometimes and never? Do I just have a block?
