Art and Star Wars

An artist never really finishes his work; he merely abandons it. ~Paul Valéry

After watching the latest in a long line of tragic mistakes George Lucas has made in a bizarre effort to simultaneously profit on the gullibility of and alienate his fans (Return of the Jedi on Blu-Ray), I started thinking about art class. I can recall many occasions where students have created wonderful drawings or paintings and, not being satisfied with them, continued to work and work and work on them until they ended up completely ruining what they had done and usually ending up quite frustrated. Not fun.

This past week I sent out a number art websites that are fun. I have personally taken some time to explore these sites and I know a number of other people have as well, including some students. If you haven't yet, I would personally recommend thisissand and flame.

The big question, if you use these with your students is how can we save these works of art?

Watch below for one option.
