When I was student-teaching in elementry art, I taught the kids how to =
use the paint brush as I am sure everyone else does. But I made point of =
noting proper brush care to each student. We did pretend-painting =
(without paint) to show how to use the brush and how to clean the brush. =
To me, the little things need to be reinforced as much as the big ones. =
I still have my students practice walking into the classroom the correct =
way, as a class. Sounds silly and childish I know. A little extra time =
practicing the correct techniques goes a long way.
