If you're looking for art games books, I have one that I'd recommend to
you. "Games for Teaching Art" by Sandra L.H. Alger (J. Weston Walch,
publisher ISBN 0-8251-2652-5) is filled with many art games, many of
which are perfect for those few minutes at the end of class. Other games
in the book are meant for the full class and more time. I'm not sure
what issue, but either School Arts or Arts & Activities had an article
last school year on the subject.

I use art games as part of my whole class behavior reward system. I
bring out purchased games such as "Find the Painting" and "Where Art
Thou?", both of which can be purchased in NASCO. Similar in format to
Memory, the children enjoy the games and are learning about art at the
same time. Using the "Where Art Thou?" game images, I devised an art
Bingo game which I titled MONA. This is a big hit with students and
teaches visual recognition. If you want more details, let me know.
