About Our Cover – The student artwork on our cover is titled "Spring Delight" and was created by Morgon Rayne Mortenson, a student at Graettinger Terril Comm. Schools in Terril, Iowa (Rodney James, art teacher.) We invite and encourage you to submit digital photos of outstanding student work for consideration for use on or in one of our catalogs. If your submission is selected, we will contact you for a high-resolution image and provide you with releases to be signed by your school and the student's parents. Send images to Circle No. 200 on Reader's Service Card Teacher-Tested New products tested and reviewed by art teachers just like you! Scratch-Art® Clear-Scratch™ Teacher: Kelly Ceckowski, art teacher, State Road School, Webster, New York. Level: Elementary The Project: I used Clear-Scratch to conclude a lesson on value. Students drew on the paper to achieve an opposite result: The areas with lines close together let more light show. With pencil drawings, lines drawn close together make a shadowed area. Students also practiced drawing texture on subjects of their choice, including animals and vehicles. Different from colored scratch paper, this product allows users to place specific color behind drawings if they so choose. This unique alternative creates an interesting "see-through" result.
