Any chance you would consider tweaking this into a teaching planner/tool for us non-art-teachers? I love the design of this SO much, but am an ESL teacher.

Love the suggestion. You should check out Erin Condren's teacher planners. They are amazing!
I'll keep your suggestion in mind, but it's not quite my focus even though this one was totally fun to design. Thanks!

Hello!
I just made a Pinterest board for TPT Art Lessons and I was wondering if you wanted to be a collaborator. If you do, then follow the board and then let me know your Pinterest name so I can add you as a collaborator.

Here is the link:

Hi K,
I'm sorry that you were disappointed. I include every page in the preview so that you can see what you are receiving for your purchase. I don't believe I spoke about artist tie-ins. Maybe you were looking for another one of my products? I don't believe there is a guarantee with teachers pay teachers but I will admit that this isn't my primary source for selling lessons an therefore, I'm not familiar with their customer support. I'll check into a refund if that's what you would like.

If you have Adobe Pro, you can add text to the blank spaces but otherwise, the workbook is static. One tip is to use a circle sticker to place over my grade level markers and write in your grade level.
Keep in mind that the standards and grade level lessons are for K-6.

Marisa K. re: Art Teacher's Curriculum Workbook
In the listing "Art Teacher's Curriculum Workbook", at the bottom of the page it lists the grade levels and fourth grade is omitted. I'm sure it was just an over sight.
PS- I love your website! I have been following you for several years. You are very inspiring!

It seems that the page on drawing the bird is missing from the pdf. Is there a way to get a corrected version?

Deep Space Sparkle   (TpT Seller)
Hi,
There isn't a page missing...but I can understand what you mean. I included the small drawing visuals as a drawing reference (last page). I assumed that the bird drawing was more straight forward than the other two, so I didn't include written instructions. Perhaps I should have! Thanks for pointing this out. I'll consider changing it.

Yes. The Massai warrior drawings and the Senufo Mud cloth art would work very well with 6th grade.

I'm wondering about the supplies list. I'm looking to purchase this to sub art for 3 homeschool students this Friday. We have limited supplies. Could you tell me what is needed? We only have 50 minutes as well. Love your work, BTW!

I like simple supplies as well...liquid tempera paint (blue, yellow and red), old kitchen sponges, white drawing paper, scissors and an oil pastel. Colored paper for the background if you have it. Have fun!

Update: 2/12; In order to ask for technical support, you need to open a "ticket" which is just a form to ask a question. You can find that "ticket" here: https://support.teacherspayteachers.com

This should be no problem. I'm trying to figure out how to do this as the returns are handled by TpT. In the meantime, can you describe what your download problems are? Or if you prefer, you can email me directly and I can send you another link.

update: I just contacted tech support to ask how to refund your purchases. I'm awaiting an answer. In the meantime, is there anywhere on your order form to request a refund?

I'll send this off to Neil in tech support. Can you email me at patty.palmer@deepspacesparkle.com? You also might want to try asking TpT for tech support, although I have no idea how to do that!
Neil can always send you a direct link though.

Buyer re: Easy Clay Art Projects
Hi, We are a homeschool family and I would love to do clay with my kids. I obviously don't have a kiln. Are there places that will fire things for you, I know you are in a different state, but in general. Are there maybe alternatives that will give the same effect. That was one of my most favorite things that I did when I was in elementary school. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Love all your work.
Thanks, Leigh

Instead of ceramics (which is fired clay) try air dry clay (Crayola has one). It doesn't have the same feel as ceramics but it gives the child the feel of working with clay.
Also, check your local ceramic artists to see if they offer kiln usage in their studios. Also, there may be some city or museum sponsored art programs that offer ceramic classes.

I love your web site and have followed you for years! I just wanted to give you a heads up that we can't sell anything Dr. Seuss on TpT as it is copyrighted material. They will ask you to take it down, as they did to all of us sellers last year.

Anything that is Dr. Seuss....the name, images...You can email Paul at TpT. Here is a good link as well: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Top-5-Copyright-Questions-for-TpT-TeacherAuthors

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching art for the past eleven years and founded the art lesson blog Deep Space Sparkle in 2009 with the hopes of providing dynamic art lessons for school teachers. My blog is an extension of what I do in the art room: painting, drawing and sharing my love of art.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Children and art are a natural combination. I strive to balance direct line instruction, observation techniques and free expression to produce art lesson that every child can use to be successful. I use basic materials and teach techniques that are age appropriate and grade specific. I save my best lessons for my ebooks and provide detailed photo-tutorials taken in the classroom. Art teachers around the world have used my ebooks when developing their art curriculums.
