Re: new teacher, quotes, need art room rules

I switched to elementary art two years ago. It is very boring to do the same
thing on each grade level and when it comes time to display so many things
are the same.

Go to Judy Decher's web site and keep coming to this we site and you will
find so much help. I couldn't have done it without all these art teacher.. Back
issues of Art and Activities and School Arts will help. Your media center may
have some. If you can get one copy of the textbook "Art Talk." There is so
much in the book especially the elements and principles of art. I cover these
with kindergartens. They do better with value than the 4th graders. Don't
be afraid to give them harder projects just shortened. I can have them drawing
their hands when the do so well with simple a still life.
