EYES M I D D L E S C H O O L AMAZING ANIMAL Michael Sacco I n my Studio Art class, we always take on a painting unit immedi - ately after our drawing unit. By this time, students have an understand - ing of value shading and rendering and look forward to working with color. A few years back, I decided to have my freshman Studio Art students use water-soluble oils instead of acrylic paint. Working with quick-drying acrylics in a forty-minute period had always presented challenges. Students became frustrated with the short workability of acrylics. Water-soluble oils were new to me and as long as cleanup didn't involve any nasty sol - vents, I was game to try them. Plus, I knew the longer workability of oils was sure to make students happy dur - ing the painting process. Tessa Small. SCHOOLARTSMAGAZINE.COM 31
