Did you have art class after school ? - response


Date: Mon Mar 04 2002 - 17:22:18 PST


Yes we do have art after school. Its called art clubs, and some of us do this
in Florida in the US and some of us don't. The children by 2:00 are somewhat
tired from all the intensive writing, math, and reading. In Florida we are
beginnning an extensive testing which begins next week. Its called the
Florida Comprehensive Aptitute Test.
    I have been doing art club for 13 semester (1/2 a year) and I find the
children need more outside time rather than art time as the bell rings at two
o'clock. I teach K -5.
    My lessons during normal classroom time are DBAE and I have a proficient
knowledge of art history which I pass on to my students, but art clubs after
school have proved to be only a baby sitter type of situation. The children
are too tired to put much effort into their projects.
