      Greetings Grace and All,

      I agree with you Grace. I invite those considering TAB
      Choice ("Teaching for Artistic Behavior") to sign on
      to TAB Choice list on Yahoo Groups.
      Lurk for a while then jump right in.

      one 12 week session during their middle school years.
      I gave them a lot of different experiences - drawing-
      printmaking- painting - ceramics - sculpture.
      Painting usually included some kind of mixed media
      (many choices). 2-D lessons often included some type
      of collage with printmaking, drawing and painting
      (many choices). My own personal strength was in 3-D
      art. My boys did better than the girls when I did
      weaving - it was really interesting.

      I found a lot of male artists/craftsmen to help
      motivate my boys.

      P.S. All beware... I have already received my first
      virus email on my NEW Road Runner address. Just delete
      it if you get one. No need to notify me as I know more
      will be coming. My machine is not sending them.
