Paige, I have been teaching middle school art since 1975 and have seen an increase in imitation of cartoonmcharacters. I use the plagerism policy to explain why we can not copy the art of others. I have sldo posted sa list of "no's" with items like no lollipop trees and so on. I also have a list of "yes" where I put things like original ideas. A discussion of what an original idea is , would be helpful as well as the difference between copying and being inspired by. Hope this helps. Deb/ Kent, ohio

Subject: [teacherartexchange] Cartoons in painting

<br>Hi there fellow teachers. Help is greatly needed. I am a 8th grade art teacher here in Cape Town South Africa. I am having a problem with the learners handing in projects consisting of 'copied' cartoon characters, Sponge Bob, South Park etc. The one project I set was as ' Self-portrait in a personal landscape'. I got some really lovely projects and then I got these cartoon reproductions that the learners said they identified with. How do I word the project outline or rubric to not have this problem?<br>Please help<br>Paige, Wynberg Girls High,Cape Town, South Africa<br><br>---<br>To unsubscribe go to <br>>
