I took a class a few years ago...we did blind contours and seeing contours
of the hand...then we used 2" viewfinders and blew up the little space into
an 81/2x11" or whatever space...we used pastels in either complements or
analogous color schemes. They were incredible...have the kids work all
the dust into the paper...not shake or blow it around and the intensity is
really nice.
have the kids pick out the most interesting intersection of line...candace
