Sometimes students need inspiration before they can start out on their art project. One solution I tell them is to look in books about artists and see what kind of art work they created. I would like to create an art library in my art classroom where students can read about artists and different art styles. The library will consist of books about artists and art styles on many different reading levels so all of my students may use them. I want to give my students the opportunity to discover art and have readily available resources in the classroom to do this exploration. My students come from low income families and most students receive free lunch. The school library does not have many books on the arts.
