The same lessons, year after year....


Date: Sun Nov 28 2004 - 16:37:49 PST

Had to laugh at how we sometimes get "trapped" into doing the same projects each year--though I personally love the idea of the moveable murals and the chairs (probably because I haven't done them!)

There are some things I intentionally repeat each year--the gridded self-portraits for Art I students, mainly because I feel it really pushes them to develop their drawing skills.

I'm not planning to do the self-expressive portrait masks this year ( and I know some kids are going to be disappointed. It's just time to give it a break and do something different.

What are some of the projects you feel "obligated" to do each year?
