Gourd anger

it started out innocently enough drawing still life objects in Observational Drawing Class.

And then it turned into a full scale anti-gourd movement.

At some point students became angry at the gourds.
I encouraged the students to express their anger at the gourds. 
Otherwise, the bored students would have gone to sleep. 
If you are a teacher and the choice is between anger and boredom I suggest you support the anger and let them draw on it!

Luke hates gourds drawing. Bailey hates gourds drawing Septemeber 2009
