      I taught pre-K
      I know the spectrum of kid reactions!
      5-6yrs is the best!
      : D
      the Models at Parsons school of design were all
      gorgeous/ male & female
      if you do visit ask me about when I had my first 'male' model
      in an 'grown up's' painting class
      ,when I was 13...I nearly fainted!
      its funny!

      To be fair, the models I did anatomy drawings from at Pittsburgh looked nothing like what I see at the Con ;)

      In additiona, my son blushes every time he asks for a chicken "breast" LOL

      While I'm certainly not knocking the Con by any means, I sometimes feel a bit uncomfortable walking past certain (usually fantasy/pinup) artists with my kids where they can see the near next-to-nothing artwork (sometimes nudes with yellow pasties over the areas). Admittedly, *I* like seeing the work, but when kids are in tow (ages 11 and 6) and want to see the entire floor, it can be a bit uncomfortable. And as much as I would like to let my kids go see what they like without me, I'm not that free-spirited.

      But we make due as we can.
