I find a lot of great art lesson ideas on line. One site that has been so helpful over the years is Art Projects for Kids. Kathy Barbro shares so many wonderful lesson ideas and tips as well as techniques and materials. A recent lesson I did with Ms. McBrides 2nd grade class is directly influenced by Kathy's site. It is a wonderful way to introduce the color wheel and color theory to young students and connect to the upcoming Valentine's Day Holiday.And who doesn't love color?
With older students this would be a fun way to explore the work of artist Jim Dine.
