Asian art is pretty much awesome - the colors, the lines, the stories, the mediums. That's why I love teaching it so much to my elementary kids (and why they seem to love it too)!
This PDF contains 18 Asian art lesson ideas (all art-class tested, kid-approved), including projects in painting, printmaking, origami, ceramics and more. Each page includes student-made artwork examples, links to relevant websites that will give historic and background information, a brief historic/cultural context for the lesson, and a lesson summary.
- Watercolor Koi Fish Painting
- Gyotaku Fish Printing (gotta love those fish!)
- Origami Bird Wall Mural
- Sumi-e Ink Painting
- Fantasy Animal Sculptures inspired by Chinese Dragons
- and much more!
I typically teach Asian art as a year-long unit to my fourth graders, but these lessons are easily adaptable to any (and I mean ANY) age group.
