How about the "Anti-Art Coloring Books" or some of the coloring books of
famous artworks. I have a coloring sheet of "The Scream" and "Starry Night"
(two of my favorites). The students color on these when they are finished,
and after most students have had a chance to color these I bring out the
"real" paintings. Students are always amazed at how differently they
interpreted the subjects. I also have tons of "How to Draw" books, fun art
type books (optical illusions, origami, etc).
