> Hi, Woody, since we're on the subject of "Drawing"...
> I sub around our mountain area just to keep in touch with the
> where it all happens. This Art IV class was irate that I asked them to go
> out and sketch the campus, It was a lovely sunny afternoon. One boy
> commented that he was insulted to be asked to draw because he was a senior
> and had "already had all that drawing stuff."
> I said, "Great! Then you will have no problem with the assignment." I
> had them pin up their sketches on the front board. Three out of the
> twenty-four could be said to have demonstrated "some" drawing skills. I
> 4th grade renderings that would have put most of those drawings to shame.
> Shall we put the blame on the curriculum - or what?
> Glad your kids love you and are good. It is a reflection of your
> generous kind nature and spirit towards them, I am sure.
> Bob
