One of the biggest challenges art teachers face is not having enough time to do quality lessons. Sometimes you just need a lesson that is quick, easy and can be finished in one art session. I know I always need a good one-session lesson whether it's to finish up a rotation or just for a change of pace for the kids.
The FIVE lessons in this 37-page ebook all have the potential to be completed in 45-50 minutes. For those who are skeptics, I've included lots of tips for handling supplies, dealing with prep and using handouts for independent student work.
The packet includes teaching tips for quick lessons and the best art supplies to use. Each lesson has a supply list, handouts, objectives, student galleries and full-color photo-tutorials. These are lessons I use and teach in my classroom so every one has my personal seal of approval! classroom-tested-stamp
