Do you struggle with how to open up your centers at the beginning of the year? Keys for Unlocking Centers in the Art Studio provides engaging, quick activities that can be used by students to unlock their centers.
In this download you will get Keys for unlocking 7 centers (drawing, painting, collage, iPads, fiber arts, clay and architecture). Each Key poster is completely editable so that you can customize the activities to fit your Art Studio. You will also get 2 versions of my Studio Trackers that are specifically used for unlocking centers and tracking center choice throughout the year. These are also editable. In my classroom, when a student completes the Key activity, they receive a sticker which is placed on the lock for that center. We color code our centers on the Studio Tracker. Also included is a worksheet for the Drawing/Painting experiment activity which is one of the keys for unlocking those centers.
