Class Activity: A good way to develop interest is to allow students to explore various artists and their work and to decide which one appeals to them. From this they can research their chosen artist and submit a short written report with a brief class presentation. This would work as an individual or as a paired activity.

  1. I especially love Nick Bantock, and have and extra special place in my heart for the work of Ludwig Bemelmans (who doesn't?).

    Strange, amazing list.
