Lesson Plans

new member/ art club question

Hi everyone!

I am a brand new spanking member. :) Glad this group exists! Thanks.

Question for ya.

I teach in a private school, I am an early childhood teacher. But apart from
that I have started an afterschool art club for the students. Hold on to your
seats now, kids from grade 1-8 are in the club, all at the same time. It is
actually working quite well!!!!!!!!

The focus of the club is drawing with pencils right now. Later we will use
colored pencils and after that we will try to build up funds to get painting
supplies etc.... (bake sales....)

So I am basically doing drawing with them. We started out working with the
idea of lines and did some looking at cave paintings.

For those of you who are interested in helping me, can you suggest what my
progression should be in general and do you have any ideas to share on how to
do this.

My group mainly consists of 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 year olds with a few younger
and a few older who I can give extra attention to.

I do not have a formal art background, but I am an artist, specializing in
watercolors right now, so I could use all the help you could give me. Thank
