Larry, I remember (last spring???) you sharing the Wetcanvas link. Around
this time you had posted your student's work and other members of wetcanvas
were critiquing their work. I was so impressed with the sensitivity these
adults used when critiquing your budding artist's work. Since we all know
that we, as teachers, can say something 500 times, but the second they see
it on film or hear it from a stranger then they will believe it! :-) So this
method of having others outside the classroom offer comments on a student
artwork can do nothing but benefit the kids.
