Thank you to everyone for the input on this matter... I feel better knowing that there are other teachers who rely on art history and art discussions to develop the quality of student work and art appreciation, even when it takes time from "hands on" activity. Thank you Judy for the excellent resources and the encouragement. It's nice to have some outside perspectives! Thank you all!

        With 4th and 5th, I spend 1/2 to one full class on history and prep for
        a lesson. The project itself USUALLY lasts for one to four lessons.
        With 2nd and 3rd, I usually don't spend more than 1/2 class on history
        and prep. The project can go from one to three classes, rarely more.
        With K and 1st, usually demo and lesson are one class. Occasionally, it
        might go to two.
