RE: other table artists

Woody - I love your site. Thank you for sharing.
The table artist idea is something I've been using for years. Since I have so little time with the kids (1 hr a week), it's a great way to teach a little art history and have the kids acquainted with some high-recognition artists. Then, when a class is discussing an element, principle, art technique, etc, the table artists are used as touch stones for comparison. For example, when Landscapes come up, I might ask the class how Chagall handled them, compared to another table artist for that year- I'd have some realistic artist's work - say, Monet (shootin' for those Blooms levels). Posters of each table's artist are hanging in the room - those, also stay up all year.

        It's great to see the idea spread around. I assigned tote
        trays by table, put table labels on each students art notebooks,
        assigned jobs by tables, included questions on tests about each
        artist, etc. The number of uses are endless.
