I'm thinking of connecting my computer in my classroom to the monitor of a vcr set so an entire classroom of juniors/seniors in my painting class can follow along. Hoping maybe to meet in a chat room, and have an artist here discuss their work.

Students would look at samples of the artist's work, (providing the artist has a web site), prepare a few questions. Anyone game???

Great idea! I'm not volunteering--just think it's a great idea. (I'm not verbal enough nor do I have a web site.) Phyl

That would be interesting. Would be glad to be one volunteer.

Hi Larry,
I'd be willing. Taught K-12 for several years. Love to meet your students virtually. Just have to plan in advance. If you tell me what you wish to discuss/q's, and about your class, I would do what I could to reinforce what you wish to teach.

Mid-Febuary to mid-March would be good for me.

They already have the best teacher possible right at their fingertips! But I realize students usually don't recognize what they have till later on.

Hi Larry... maybe I am too thin skinned to try this. I would have an awful time recovering over anymore "bashing" of realistic painting... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif On second thought, your students could compare my detail obsessive works to your cool plein aires!

Carol,
You should'nt be so sensitive about realism bashing. I've been listening to it for 40 years completely unmoved since I prefer being an employed painter rather than a starving artist.

Anyway, its usually emanates from people who cannot do it.

Also designating one form of painting as being superior/inferior to another is just plain silly.

Just kidding here gang...Larry knows I admire his ability to paint loose and free after having spent over 20 years painting (successfully) in a much tighter style. I secretly wish I too could sit in his classroom... http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif Carol

Thanks gang...I'll give it a bit more thought, and talk to the kids. I have a new bit of technology which allows me to hook up the computer, thus ie internet to a larger television, so...I could do this from my desk, and students could watch and participate!

Well...wasn't that bash session fun huh??? Its endless...and really comes from both ends a great deal of the time. I am amazed though at the generosity of spirit WC participants commit themselves to so for the most part to disagree in a cordial manner. If you've spent much time on newsgroups or elsewhere...you know exactly what I mean. The kind of vile rage you get out there is really something else!

I have not and can't imagine abandoning my realistic tight work entirely...for there are opportunities such as the Federal Duck stamp competition, etc., where having that ability would yet serve my interests. I just don't see the magic in it (like I used to) as much as someone that can make a mess up close that turns to breathing living realism a few paces away. Will get back to y'all...thanks again!

Larry

Would it be feasible for some of us to listen in?
