    Do any of you have any creative ways to present art history and information on artists that include alot of active participation. I have a hard time coming up with creative ways of presenting this info. that actively involves the kids and doesn't put them to sleep. I am doing a lesson on Surrealism and can think of all kind of activities after they know the info, its getting it to them that is hard. Thanks!

  This may not help you with your immediate need, but I suggest you get the following book. It offers lots of practical ideas for making teaching and learning art history more interactive.
