Larry,
I came upon an email that you graciously sent me back in August of 2003 on
contour drawing. So good it was a true keeper. You go into how you talk about
rt/left, older brother/ sibling discussion, and blind contours. I'm teaching
ninth grade studio art and we're starting to draw. I want to start with blind
contours but I was wondering how much you do. In your email to me you mentioned
you have them do a blind contour of their hand then go into one of their
partner. I"m wondering is this one period, or two?
   Trying to get a sense of how much preliminary work I should do before
attemping a true still life project. I know blind contours, if done correctly, can
be tiring, so I don't want to weigh them down, but of course want to give
them the max benefit from the exercise. You also mentioned you go on to a one
line continuous countour next. Can you explain this a bit.

You been a great help to me by giving me insight on class matters and
personal matter. I really appreciate it.

thanks,

mike sacco
