...and recently, when the 5th grade teacher returned to "pick up" his class,
he just stared at my drawing on the chalkboard (a simple 1 pt. perspective
that I had walked the class through to get them started) in amazement! ...and
a second grade teacher was astonished that her class had "gotten" depth with
simple shapes traced (like wooden squares) and turned into dimensional objects
(ice cubes, fish tanks, telephone booths, etc.) and said that SHE needed to
take Art Class from me! I am slowly earning some respect as an "artist" at my
school, as well as "the new art teacher."
