It seems to me that you may have opened some doors that otherwise could have remained closed. By giving the children the information to expand on what interests them, you have started them on a road where the only thing to hold them back is there own imagination. Like you said, they can now experiment with other writing and graphics to get just what they had in mind. I think they are more interested in what comes from them as opposed to what someone else dictates they should do. I know from my own experience that I'm definitely more interested in what I think up than what someone tells me I should be doing. Who knows, one of the kids you taught today may come to create art or something inconcievable to the rest of us tomorrow.
