Greetings to All, Again I need advice and help. My son's elementary
school is planning an Art Day on October 23, to increase the awareness for
art in the elementary school. There are approximately 525 students and
there is a budget of $500. They would like each student to produce a work
of art. The teachers, parent volunteers and high school art students will
be leading the activities. These are children that have had no art in the
elementary. Any suggestions for successful projects that will excite the
children to clamor for art.. to everyone they know... would be appreciated.
We need exciting cheap projects that are unusual. Think of it as a
happening, not a structured lesson. There will be approximately 4 hours in
which to work. The whole day will be devoted to art.
I need to say that I enjoyed Bunki's list of things they never told
you about teaching . I would like to add...
You will undoubtedly get sick on Friday evening, spend the weekend
feeling miserable and recover Monday morning, two days behind on your
grading and planning.
In advance, thanks for the suggestions.
