I have attended beginning and advanced two day trainings. I have mixed
feelings, but it does help very young children know where to start and they
love it! I always make sure that whatever we draw together is just the
beginning. They are encouraged to put their animal in a habitat of their
choosing. This encourages their own creativity and ideas. I think it might
work well with older adults as they will gain confidence and succeed right

Subject: [teacherartexchange] teaching methods
what do you all think about "monart" - as a teaching method?
I am teaching art to the elderly in assisted living facilities and
would like to be able to offer a wider range
of skills but due to physical disabilities I am not sure that my
methods are appropriate...
