hello all, I have been asked to do a teacher training for elementary classroom teachers in my district ( I am
the Junior high and HS art teacher ) The elementary principal sees it as a " wonderful opportunity " for me to
have better trained little artists in the 7th grade, I am glad to do this training, but am thinking that for
some of these classroom teachers, teaching art might be as uncomfortable for them as, god forbid, if I had to
teach math. So I am thinking SPEND THE MONEY AND HIRE AN ELEMENTARY ART SPECIALIST but this of course is getting
into a whole other issue SO I am curious.....

What would you all try to give these people in 3 hours ( including bathroom break of course ) that might assist
them in providing some sort of visual literacy. I really want to discourage classroom art experiences as being
just a series of projects.

I would especially like to hear from the elementary art teachers...what do you all think is vital ? I nave been
out of the elementary art loop for a while.
thanks in advance
