This post is for the Picnic Table Talk on ABC and 123 . I think I’m a couple days early with it, but oh well.
When I taught third grade in Canada, I had to teach my own art component. This was actually my favorite part of teaching. I firmly believe that art appreciation needs to be taught in conjunction to making art. I often turned to these great websites for ideas. These sites offer great art projects as well as ideas as to how to teach a bit of art history and art appreciation.
And don’t forget this blog: Art Projects for Kids.
