Anyone else like to recommend books (esp.) first hand knowledge of
curriculum you've tried.
I do like some of the nature craft books,as well as a few
multi-cultural books and "Art From many Hands".
Victor D'Amico- "Creative Teaching in Art",
"Assemblage,A New Dimention in
Creative Teaching in Action"
Mr D'Amico, one of the great pioneers in creative art education
This book is out of print.
Lois Lord," Collage and Construction in Elementary and Junior High
Schools"- great photos and examples.
There are more but let's here from some other people

"North Light Dictionary of Art Terms".*
as well as the web page Michael sent in.
"The Natural Way to Draw".
"The Materials and Techniques of Painting".
"Drawing on the Right side of the Brain".
