10-min. art lesson for PARENTS on Sat.

Okay--here's the deal. It's Parents' Weekend at my school and on Saturday
parents will be going through their child's schedule, having 10 minutes for
each class. (It's a private boarding/day school--that's why it's on

I'd planned on giving an overview of the course, describing what I hope to
accomplish this year, telling them a little about my background, briefly
sharing my philosophy of art education etc, etc. I figured I had plenty to
fill 10 minutes, especially if I allowed a couple of minutes for general

Well. The powers that be have now decided that they want us to do a mini
lesson in our subject.... I'm drawing a blank (no pun intended!) as I'm
also trying to put up our first major exhibit, get the room in some
semblance of order, and gear up for a full day of regular classes on Friday,
and then conferences with individual parents from 4 until about 8:30 Friday

Does anyone have any ideas for something that I can do (lesson wise) for
about 10 minutes that would require minimal setup-cleanup and yet be (dare I
say--hehehe) as "impressive" as my talk would have been? I teach students
grade 5-12 so it should be middle/high school-oriented.

Thanks for your help (again, and again, and again!)
