Every art teacher need the illustrated Elements of Art handout. This is a good tool for students to refer to during discussions or critiques. You can tell them that they are only allowed to comment if they use one of the "Art Smart" words from the handout. You could also hand these out for the students to write the definition of each Element next to the illustration in their own words. We want our kids to sound as smart as we know they are. Look for the colored poster to accompany the handout.
You will need this too!
