I taught Art 2,3,4 in the same room a few times. It was really hard to get them
all started on something but after itgot going then the start of one project did
not interfere with another. Have them sit in their own groups like Studio 1
together, etc. Give a reading or research assignment to others as you work with
one group. Have another make sketches for a work and then work with the third
group. It is a real hassle, but if you explain to the kids what you are trying
to do, they can be helpful. If they are not helpful, then off to the Dean for a

Subject: [teacherartexchange] combining high school art classes?

My colleague has been asked to combine studio art classes for the first time due
to low enrollment. He will now have Studio I, Studio II, and Studio III all
together in one class, but each are at various levels of learning. He will have
about 19 kids together in one class. Have any of you been asked to do this? I
have heard it is not uncommon. I teach the elementary grades, so I do not have
this problem. Any of you high school teachers been asked to do this? If so, got
any good tips on how to successfully merge these classes? Thanks. Katrina
