losing supplies: locks on all cabinets, have classes that take pencils
or break colored pencils bring theirs to class. tell their teacher in
advance and if they forget send them back to their classroom to get
them. when you have a sub put out a tub with pencils that have had the
most wear, use videos, have them work in teams to solve art puzzles,
play pictionary, have them do drama ie: re create the trial of the big
bad wolf in the 3 little pigs using the art room as a courtroom, etc.
thoughts on artists coming as a substitute art program: total the costs
of such visits, supplies, etc. and show how often kids get to do art
this way as compared to cost of having a set program with a teacher. are
these artists reaching "hands on" "age appropriate" acivities for every
child? special ed included? give kids surveys, which would they like
more? artists that do this have good intentions but by their doing this
the school can justify not hiring an art teacher because they can get
what they feel is adequate for free, the expense of their decision is
seen in the creativity of our children.
