I know there are many other talented art teachers who will also give you great information, yet I hope this may help.

Check my post about Mark Kistler. He talks about the 12 Renaissance Words for Art. There are videos that you might be able to get through your PBS station. I found he always made the connections between science, math, and creativity part of the art experience.

Mark has a website. Even if you don't use the videos with the kids, you will mostly likely get valuable information from his work.

Have a great day,
