      Dear Art Educators,

      Here's another one of Kris Fontes great technology recycling project (you
      may remember her Op Art CD lesson - using all of those AOL freebies)
      projects - Start digging through cupboards in the tech room for old 5 /14"
      floppies. Floppy Disk books:

      Kris is also a BIG fan of Extreme Makeover:

      Here's a little diversion for the seventh graders as you near
      the end of school. Instead of doing the same old tired Andy Warhol
      manipulated images, have the kids manipulate their own images...correct
      any blemishes, etc. (OK now... She is NOT advocating that their is
      anything wrong with the way they look - smile). After they have done the
      "photo retouching" she lets them liquefy their face. They talk about how
      photographers, especially those that take wedding photos and senior
      photos, do a LOT of manipulating and correcting.

      Her high school students did not have as easy an assignment. Using the
      photo of one of their teachers they were instructed to make her look ten
      years younger by smoothing out her wrinkles, raising her brows, etc. They
      have all had this teacher and she is well liked so she didn't get any
      irreverent versions.

      Are you up for it? have your student give YOU an extreme makeover.
      This just might be a fun thing for those end of the woes....Even the best
      fashion models' photos are retouched.

      Enjoy these,
