As students become more adept at authentic art, it is helpful to provide inspiration for their endeavors. In our art room at St. Egbert, I have an inspiration center full of art books and books showing a variety of illustrations. There are also lots of pictures of objects and famous art works. I am currently working on gathering models for drawing. I just purchased some animals and we have a variety of shells plus several items donated from our librarian, Nancy. The 5th graders are currently using Nutcrackers that I have gathered from thrift shops. The art room can still use more models, especially sea creatures, animals and still life items, if you have any around your house that you would like to donate. Thank you.
