Van Gogh's drawings of hands
I'm in the process of working really, really hard to start a parent-led art program (on a bigger scale than just one classroom) at my kids' school after coming across this amazing school in Portland. If you have ever wished that your kids did more art in school or had more exposure - but didn't quite know how to get something going - this is a great, concrete model. (Or, even just great art ideas to do with your kids at home). And incidentally they are SO nice when you bombard them with questions...
