One Of My Favorite Elementary Art
Art For Small Hands by Julie Voigt
One of my favorite elementary art education blogs is Art for Small Hands by Julie Voigt. I especially like her philosophical thoughts on teaching art with children:
2) Never start with a pre-cut shape. Never trace. Start from scratch. A child's circle will be more interesting than your own.
3) Quality materials and an organized, inviting workspace are an essential backdrop for creative chaos. Invest in good supplies and take time to set up.
4) Look. Look at the greats; no child is too young for art history. Look at the world; learning to make art is learning to see and find pleasure in details.
Julie posts interesting lesson ideas and numerous images that are well-photographed. I invite you to take a look at her site!
