Brushes

My approach to brush care was to do a mini-lesson on how to use and clean a
brush, step by step during the first week of school.

Brush cleaning directions (step by step) are posted over the sink.

AND on our first quiz, I had a section where students had to put the steps
for cleaning a brush in order--and it was graded.

Also, like Deb, I've got a selection of awful brushes that were left over
from last year that students will use if I see that they're not caring for
the good brushes.

So far, though--between teaching them how to care for them and making them
realize that it's important enough to test them on--this has worked out
fine!
