      Paula,
      This little brain child has been labled and celebrated for questioning, thinking outside
      the box and doing things her way. She ALWAYS gets better results from doing things her
      way or above and beyond her teacher and peers. Now she comes to you and can't listen or
      follow your directives and still live up to her label. You need to be crafty. Maybe your
      class has to figure out human proportions on graph paper or with tracing paper and
      magazine photographs before they'll "believe" you (lowly average person). Or make 3D
      models before doing drawings. Being perfect is a tall order for anyone, having a sign
      around our neck that your gifted and talented can be quite the millstone especially when
      something IS difficult to learn. If you could teach them effective effort and have art
      experiences that celebrate process over product you would be teaching a precious gift.
      Good luck! Ali
