I am a fine artist, illustrator, and graphic artist, and mother of one six
year old boy. After reading an article in Art News about The Getty and
ArtsEdNet, I decided to volunteer in my son's class to teach art (public
school first grade.)
I have created a curriculum including: slides and images from art history,
talking about art, and art projects somehow relating to each lesson.
Throughout the year i'll be covering many movements and techniques, from
primitive to contemporary, painting to printmaking, etc. I also plan on
having guest artists come to show their work and do a project, and would
like to include a field trip to an art museum.
So far I have received tremendous support from his teacher, school,
principal, and parents, and the children are so excited!! Of course, that
is the best part.
If anyone has any "words from the wise" they would like to share with me,
i'd sure love to hear them. Additionally, if anyone has a good resource for
slides and images, I could use that as well.
Of course, being an artist, if anyone has any questions for me, i'd be
happy to share any knowledge, resources, or information I have.
I look forward to being a part of this wonderful online community.
