Haven't had much time to post.  I've been spending most of my time either in drawing class or working on sketchbook assignment items.  I'll try to post some of these as soon as I get my car back from the shop (camera's in the trunk) and get back from San Francisco.   We did a really neat activity yesterday in class.  It was called the Exquisite Corpse - based on a parlor game that Surrealist artists used to play with both words and artwork.  We listened to the reading of a poem.  Then, we drew a detailed ink picture to fill the top one-third of the page.  We covered this third except for about an inch at the bottom.  Then, we moved to another drawing board, listened to a poem, filled in the next third, etc.  At the end of the class, we posted the drawings - very, very interesting.  My sister who is a teacher says that she has done this with students (first person writes an adjective, passes the paper, next person writes a noun, passes the paper, next person writes a verb.....etc.   or one person begins a story, next person adds an event, etc.)
