Art Attack!

My students need biographies about artists and examples of their art to create their own masterpieces, along with a drying rack where they can place their finished piece.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like when you created your first artistic masterpiece in school? In today's busy classroom, art is too often the forgotten subject. Don't let that happen to my students!

The students in my classroom are an active group of second and third grade children in a California public school.

They work hard on math, reading, writing, science and social studies. Our days are packed with lots of learning! For my second graders, beginning to read those really long chapter books was a big event. For the third graders, their big event was finally learning to write in cursive! They are a great group of kids to teach!

My Project

Art is all too often the "forgotten" subject. I want to get my students excited about art, and also to learn about famous artists and their important contributions. After reading aloud the artist's biography, we'll look at some samples of the art and talk about it. Then we'll create our own art-related project! Finally, being able to place completed pieces of art on a drying rack will keep our classroom neat and tidy - and inspire us to keep on creating more art!

Our school days are packed with so much academic learning.

It sometimes seems that there is no time for fun. Yet, teaching art can be both fun and informational! Art reaches out to many different kinds of learners and ties together many academic areas into one creative project.
