Lesson Plans

I think at the elementary level at least, art ed. should empower kids to
problem solve, make decisions with confidence and take healthy risks. I
think it's our job to provide the inspiration through a decent lesson;
encourage them when they deviate slightly from the plan -- tell them it's
their artistic license -- show off children's good ideas as well as their
good drawing/ptg./sculpting skills. I think the art room should be a place
where every child shines from time to time. It should definitely be a place
for kids that can't shine anywhere else in school to have a success and be
recognized by their peers for their success.
