As a first year,- part time -, high school art teacher, I spend the
rest of my time subbing in my own school. When I have run out of
lessons for them to do (or when I can't find the teacher's lessons) I
ask the students if they think they can draw. Of course many think
they can't. So I proceed and ask them to take out a paper and pencil
with a ruler. Then I teach them how to draw in perspective and
they're hooked! : )
