Re: [teacherartexchange] Touching up Elementary Projects??

Marvin, (and all)
        Besides agreeing with you on the "touching up" issue, I wanted to
about your article about kids and clay:
The fact that you show a child (your daughter) involved in the
process is so
important in showing other teachers the key points you are making.
It's sad
that more teachers don't illustrate their lessons and articles with
pics of
students making art. It is so easy to make several points succinctly
a photo. Of course there is the hesitation, understandably, about
children to the wider world. So many nuts out there today. So get
and do it carefully to avoid problems.
        I just wanted to make the point about the power of seeing kids
making art.
And, to complement you on the work you do especially that it is
available on
the web for others to peruse.
