green about Bunki's copier

Hello folks,
Just a thought on that copier.
Our "artist of the month" is Norman Rockwell, and my third graders are
creating their own Sat. Eve. Post covers. They brought in snapshots of
themselves DOing something (not a school portrait) and we discussed
"capturing the moment" with an illustration, as Rockwell did. Also, his use
of photographs for reference (they LOVE being able to actually use the copy
in the illustration! Third grade is just about the time that most realize
the primitive nature of their drawing, and can get discouraged). They cut
out enlarged xeroxes of themselves, used colored pencil over some areas and
created their own backgrounds (emphasis on SHAPE, as Rockwell often used),
but I would have LOVED to have had that copier right in the art room
throughout this!!! ("OOps, I cut my head off...") Yes, jealous here too, but
I just might ask my wonderful school parents for a copier of my own...who
knows. I live in Xerox and Kodak headquarters territory.

Oh yes! Forgot to mention. I did the Munch portraits, (thanks to all the
ideas from this listserv) in October. Enlarged the screaming face on the
copier for each student to cut out and create their own backgrounds, and LA
integr...Write WHAT makes you scream! Wow, their spelling was just atrocious!
