Hello, I am a new art teacher in an elementary school and just joining
artsnet. I am looking for helpful hints to advocate art education to the
classroom teachers, parents and sometimes principal, who seem to feel it is
just a recreational activity
(I guess this attitude came form the last art teacher). Although my
lessons
connect to the classroom curriculum such as studing art and history of the
Hopi Indians, I keep getting requests to make pilgrim hats!
I have tried explaining that I don't have time in my class to make
seasonal art
but it doesn't make much of a dent to the "old timers".
Any suggestions?
