> Any tips on dealing with middle school students?

Don't sweat the small stuff . Always have a sense of humor
They like to be teased and tease you
Go to their games
Be athletic they admire coaches
Never let them see you cry, sweat, or act like you give a damn if they
insult you, which they will.
They love to use weakness against you.
Remember all they care about is social, have the art projects relate to
their world, posters for parties and sports, use Lautrec as your artist
Clothes A good time for fashion design as a career . Research real
life fashion designers like CK (Calvin Kline)
Car design, sports uniforms and logos
Bedroom design, Hair design, advertising, CD cover design
Video productions using set design like on MTV music videos, get with
the band teacher and make videos
Any way any shape that you can relate it to their world

Remember show them how art will offer them
love (acceptance), freedom,fun, and they will be yours.
