I bought that Art Image kit for the early years and have taught a few
lessons out of it. The teaching guide is really pretty thorough with drawn
out sample discussions. And the whole thing comes in a cool corrugated
plastic case.

> Greetings Deanna and all,

> Art Image Publications has a series of prints selected

>
> Getting all of the sets could be quite pricey - but
> buying some individual prints is quite "doable" for
> any school.

> The activites that are suggested are very good for the

>
> Wow! I just checked their site and now they have a
> "new to me" program:
>
> IMAGINE AND ME
> Kindergarten Program
>
> Innovative instructional material introducing art,
> drama, music and dance within a basic KINDERGARTEN
> curriculum.
>
> Imagine and Me uses an interdisciplinary approach that
> brings together four disciplines in art education -
> art, drama, music and dance . Children learn about art
> and they learn fundamental concepts through art.
> Teachers who use Imagine and Me do not have to be art
> specialists. The program has been developed to provide
> teachers with everything they need to introduce this
> material to children.
>
> Imagine and Me is a core program that fulfills the
> following educational objectives for preschoolers: -
> Know themselves and know others - Establish
> relationships with others - Respect themselves and
> others as well as ideas, gestures and differences -
> Interact with their environment - Integrate in the
> school environment and in society - Express themselves
> - Become familiar with their immediate surroundings -
> Open up to the world and to other cultures - Develop
> fine and gross motor skills - Demonstrate visual and
> auditory discrimination - Concentrate, listen and
> solve problems - Be creative and use their
> imaginations - And much more.
>
> Go to Art Image Publications and check Catalog.
>
> Go to What's new and see sample lesson plans for Early
> Years. The lessons are so thorough - One does not need
> to be certified in art to teach them.
>
> If anyone purchases - or has purchased "Imagine and
> Me" for Kindergarten, please post a review. I will try
> to get more on this to link to Early Childhood.
>
> Looking at art and reading art gets the students ready
> for reading.
>
> Deanna, I am saving your posts.... we will "talk" more
> this summer and add a lesson ideas page to Incredible
> Art Department.
>
> All of the research shows that it is the ARTS that
> help students succeed....all of the ARTS.
> Comprehensive is the way to go.
