Woody! yes yes yes yes. If I were teaching art history to older students
and a writing product was required, I think a fascinating topic would be for
students to research the work habits of one or two master artists that they
admire. A very interesting class discussion could follow everyone's sharing of
the results of this research...and then a discussion of the various work
styles of class members.
