As an Elementary teacher for many years, I've found that you can never have too many art ideas...especially at the 4th, and 5th grade level. This PowerPoint presentation shows 50 different tried and true art lessons that I've used over the years. You'll find everything from drawing and painting, to printmaking, paper crafts, working with clay and more. Each page shows one or more examples of a finished product (all photographed examples were done by students, and therefore are exhibit a childlike handling). Each slide in the presentation lists the steps, media, preparation, and finishing touches necessary to complete each project. This collection of 50 ideas is part 4 of a series of elementary ideas, and covers only 4th and 5th grades. Future presentations will include more K-3rd ideas, 4th through 5th grade, 6th-8th and High school artwork. This grouping of ideas is ideal for a new art teacher, a crafty elementary regular classroom teacher, early childhood teacher, girl / boy scout leader, or even a seasoned art teacher looking for variations of well-known themes. I trust you'll enjoy this years’ worth of art ideas and visit my page again for more ideas.
